Federal Govt To Introduce Solar-Powered Keke And Motorcycles In 2019

The Minister of Transportation, Mr Rotimi Amaechi,on Thursday, announced Federal Governments plans to introduce solar-powered tricycles and motorcycles into the Nigerian transport system in 2019. He disclosed this at the swearing-in ceremony of newly elected executives of Amalgamated Commercial Tricycle & Motorcycle Owners, Repairs and Riders Association of Nigeria (ACOMORAN) in Abuja.
The minister, who was represented by Dr Anthonia Ekpa, Director, Road Transport and Mass Transit Administration of the Ministry, said the initiative would solve the fuel challenges faced by motorcycles and tricycles riders.
“What we have done is to ensure that we introduce into the Nigeria environment, solar-powered tricycles,
we are going to introduce into the sector tricycles that will not need to use fuel and also electric tricycles.
“I want to use this opportunity to also say that we have put it in the 2018 budget to be implemented in 2019 because in the 2018 budget we have what we called green transportation, which under it we have the solar-powered tricycles.
“We also have in the 2018 budget what we called amphibious vehicles, which is going to be in form of a tricycles which can be used on water and on land for those of you in the riverine areas, we hope to purchase that in 2019.”
He, however, said that road transport remains the most critical and accessible to all Nigerians, urging the new ACOMORAN president to ensure that his members obey all traffic laws.

Next level lies. A week before the general elections, the same shameless Amaechi was on Channels TV telling Nigerians that the railway line Lagos-Abeokuta is ready for use. He even lied that the ride was free of charge. It turned out to be blatant LIES. Also, he told Nigerians that Lagos-Ibadan Expressway was 90% completed.
Endy, if we were in a decent country, characters like Amaechi will be languishing in jail.

Its all about its sustainability of the project. What will happen after 4yrs of this project.
After all , the National Assembly is frustrating the bill for cleaner energy.
