Ogun conversion of petrol to gas in August. On Monday, Ogun State Governor Prince Dapo Abiodun said that his administration would begin converting mass transit buses from petroleum fuel to gas and motorbikes to electric in August.

According to Abiodun, the conversion campaign would begin in the first week of August.

The governor also stated that his administration would take advantage of the recently signed electricity bill, which controls the power industry, by forming a firm to generate and distribute power in the Gateway state.

Abiodun stated this during a courtesy call in his office at Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, to participants of the Senior Executive Course 45, Group 1 of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies, Kuru, Jos.

He stated that his administration would prioritize public utilities such as water and energy supply in its second term.

“We are actually going to launch what we call our E-mobility and Gas Mobility Programme sometime around the end of this month or the first week of August,” he explained.

“The gas mobility is a program in which we will convert not only our buses to run on gas, but all mass transit will begin to run on gas, and our E-mobility is a program in which we will convert all of our motorcycles and tricycles to run on electricity.”

“We will take advantage of the constitutional amendment that has now moved power generation from the exclusive list to the concurrent list.”

“We will have our own generation and distribution companies, and we will ensure that we can supply more power to our major towns and cities.” Once we’ve accomplished it, the grid will be adequate for our tiny towns.”

The governor also revealed that his administration has spent a significant amount of money on the renovation of water works around the state in order to ensure the supply of drinkable water to the people.

“On the issue of water, we have spent a lot of money on our water works,” he added. It may interest you to know that Lagos State relies on water from the Ogun River.

“We’ve put a lot of money into our waterworks.” What we need to do today is be innovative with reticulation while simultaneously providing water in all of our main towns and cities.

“Those will be one of our focal areas so that we can ensure that we have sustainable towns and cities where we have electricity and water supply,” he said.

Earlier, Prof. (Mrs.) Oluwafunmilayo Para-Mallam, the team leader and Director of Studies, stated that the participants are embarking on the study as ordered by the President to examine contemporary subjects of national relevance.
