While speaking at the ceremony, she said it was a fulfilling moment for her to announce to the world that made in Nigeria LPG cylinders could now be exported, rather than for Nigerians to continue to import cylinders and deplete its foreign reserves.

“We’re using this forum to announce to the world that TechnoGas cylinders have hit the market and we’re ready to meet every demand, local and international.”

Few months ago, Techno Oil Ltd. Completed its multi-billion-naira facility. The facility is expected to produce five million cylinders of various sizes annually and generate no fewer than 6,000 jobs.
