Firm to train 1,000 technicians on autogas conversion of vehicles.

This is contained in a statement issued by Ms Joyce Daser-Adams, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the firm, on Saturday in Abuja.

“The training is also a measure taken to accelerate the Federal Government’s Autogas policy aimed at achieving its 2060 Net-zero carbon reduction agenda.

“The training will also follow workshop attachment for professional proficiency and professional certifications,” she said.

She said it is estimated that by the year 2030, cars-on-gas adoption would have significantly contributed to mitigating the impact of climate change and assisting to meet National Gas Expansion Programme targets

Daser-Adams said the series of training, which will take place nationwide, would start from Lagos for one-week intensive programme for experienced and inexperienced technicians.

She said the firm had converted vehicles for several organisations, including those belong to Nigerian Police Force, The Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria, and NNPC.

“We call on the National Automotive Design and Development Council as an agency for automotive sector to collaborate and support our initiative to reduce the cost of training the technicians.
