“The withdrawal of the subsidy has created a shock and the price of fuel has increased by almost 200% leading to restiveness in the Nigerian Labour Congress, the trade unions, and other Nigerians. The cost of transportation has risen apparently and one of the ways the government can alleviate that is by introducing mass transit systems that run on alternative energies as well as fuel. The more you have the ones that run on gas and solar, the greater the chances of a stable fuel price due to the existence of choices and Innoson offers that,” he said.

Speaking more about the vehicles, the CEO of Innoson Motors Manufacturing, Chief Dr Innocent Chukwuma assured Nigerians of the availability and safety of the different kinds of cars that use Gas.

Mr. Cornel Osigwe, the head of corporate communications, at Innoson Motors, explained the advantages of these gas-powered vehicles.

“Gas has high combustion rate than fuel. So generally, gas is more environmentally friendly. Nigerians are used to petrol cars but the abundance of natural gas has provided sustainable alternatives to all,” he said.
