Tinubu Orders FEC Members to Switch to CNG-Powered Vehicles

President Bola Tinubu has issued a directive prohibiting members of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) from purchasing petrol-dependent vehicles.

The move was part of Tinubu’s administration’s efforts to promote the use of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG)-enabled motors.

According to a statement released by the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, on Monday in Abuja, the move aligns with the President’s commitment to harnessing Nigeria’s gas potential, reducing transportation costs, and improving the standard of living for all citizens.
