Published

Dangote Cement Plc said it is committed to transitioning all its trucks to run on Compressed Natural Gas, CNG, by 2025, as a significant step toward cleaner energy adoption in Nigeria.

It said that the gesture is a strategic move that aligns with the Federal Government’s agenda on promoting alternative energy for vehicles across the country, as well as reducing the nation’s dependence on fossil fuels.

Alhaji Aliko Dangote, Chairman, Dangote Cement Plc, made the assertion during the company’s 15th Annual General Meeting, AGM, on Tuesday in Lagos.

NAN reported that the President Bola Tinubu-led administration, just one year in office, had announced plans to launch 2,700 CNG buses and tricycles to cushion the impact of fuel subsidy removal on ordinary Nigerians.

Dangote stated that the company decided to support the Federal Government’s quest to reduce dependence on fossil fuel, thereby enhancing the nation’s energy independence and contributing to a more secure energy future.

“We are now going to start using CNG vehicles, especially with the new policy of the Federal Government, launched by the Renewed Hope Agenda by His Excellency, President Bola Tinubu.

“By the end of next year, all our trucks that are operating in the company will be running on CNG, and that is a whole lot of money that we are going to invest.

“But we are equal to the task, and we will continue to push and make sure that we continue to make our shareholders happy,” Dangote said.
