FG To Begin Nationwide Distribution Of 10million Gas Cylinders

The Federal Government says that it will inject 10,000,000 cylinders of Liquefied Petroleum Gas in circulation throughout the country to increase access to raw material.

Musa Ibrahim, Managing Director of Nigeria LPG, made this known during a two-day awareness workshop in Bauchi on Tuesday.

He said that the cylinders would be distributed nationally through registered dealers, saying that we would establish micro centers for the sale and distribution of the cylinders.

“The price of safe cylinders is affordable since LPG is capable of improving the economic activities of end users,” he said.

Dayo Adeshina, Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President for LPG, urged the people of the state to adopt the use of LPG in their homes.

He explained that the federal government is considering the possibility of increasing access to the raw material by reducing the high cost of LPG to expand affordability.

He said that the use of gas for cooking would reduce the cases of deforestation, desertification and soil erosion that seriously contribute to environmental dangers.

In his statements, Governor Bala Mohammed, represented by his deputy, Baba Tela, assured that his government will support the program so that it is successful.

He called on the national LPG office to develop a means or device through which gas for car combustion will be introduced to reduce carbon emissions.

He explained that many Nigerians are unaware of the potential of LPG and stressed that citizens should be properly aware of the product’s potential.

Earlier in his remarks, state natural resources commissioner Nuruddeen Abdulhameed said the government would fully support the implementation of the project.

He said the state government would provide ample land and the political will to ensure the successful launch of the program.

According to NNN, the two-day awareness workshop was called “Engaging Bauchi State in Sustainable Socio-Economic Growth through LPG Adoption and Expansion.
