President Muhammadu Buhari has urged Nigerians to consider gas as an alternative to petrol.

He stated this on Tuesday, December 1, at a virtual event to unveil the National Gas Expansion Programme and National Autogas Roll-out Initiative.

According to President Buhari who commended Nigerians and the organsed labour for the patience they have shown the administration amid the current economic challenges, Autogas Roll initiative is beneficial.

Speaking via a statement from Femi Adeshina, a presidential aide, Buhari said Nigerians should take advantage of the vast natural gas resources in the country by making more use of gas instead of petrol.

The president was quoted as saying: “It is no longer news that the vast Natural Gas resources, which Nigeria is endowed with has hitherto been used sub-optimally as a result of a dearth of gas processing facilities and infrastructural connectivity for effective and optimal domestic utilization.

“As I mentioned above, with a proven reserve of about 203 Trillion Cubic Feet (TCF) and additional upside of 600 TCF ranking Nigeria as the 9th in the world currently, the need for domestic gas expansion and utilization is apparent.’’

He assured citizens that the federal government is working hard to proffer solutions to the economic challenges in the country.
