Car owners to pay N250,000 to convert cars to autogas – FG

Published

on

Car owners in the country will have to pay N250,000 to convert their cars to autogas.

Justice Derefaka, Technical Adviser on Gas Business and Policy Implementation to Minister of State for Petroleum, Timipre Sylva who appeared on a Channels Television programme on Wednesday December 2 after the Group Managing Director, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mele Kyari on Tuesday December 1 said that one million cars are to be powered by Autogas free of charge, averred that vehicle owners will have different payment plans to covert their cars to autogas.

He said;

“The cost varies. So in terms of cost implication, it depends on the cylinder of the vehicle and of course, for a typical SUV cylinder, it is a bit higher but on the average, it is around N200,000 to N250,000 and this is for a four-cylinder vehicle but it becomes a little bit higher for a six-cylinder SUV vehicle.”

Also commenting on the different payment plans for car owners who want to convert their cars, Derefaka stated that the conversion is not totally free.

He added;

“The owner of the car basically will decide to say I want to run on autogas or CNG or LNG and like the honourable minister had mentioned it as well, conversion basically, has different strands, you can partner with your bank and then the bank will now agree with the conversion centre to say ‘Convert this our customer’s car for free.’ Not free in its entirety.

“But then you now go and covert your vehicle. What happens is that the installer will put some form of mechanism that each time you buy the gas; a certain amount will be deducted to pay for the conversion kits.”

Dimissing fears of many Nigerians seeing the conversion fee as expensive, the aide noted that payment can be done within five to seven months.

Derefaka said;

“And that in its self has saved you the use of gas in lieu of petrol to about 45-50 per cent,” the Marine Engineering graduate from the Rivers State University (RSU), Port Harcourt added. “So, there is a huge cost-saving in that regard.”

A drunk police officer who stole a police van has been arrested in South Africa by his colleagues over the alleged unauthorised use of the van.


Drunk officer arrested after stealing police car (Video)

The North West Police officer who was arrested on charges of drinking and driving and using a state car without permission was captured in a video hitting a pole and struggling to get out of the car, seemingly because he was highly intoxicated.

He struggled to stand steady and he had a slurred speech when residents stopped him and showed him that he had crashed into someone’s yard.

The policeman who was in full police uniform at the time was seen holding a plastic bag full of what’s presumed to be booze.

The police were called in after the incident and the policeman was arrested.

Commenting on the incident, North West police spokesman Brigadier Sabata Mokgwabone said SAPS management was appalled by an unprofessional and unbecoming conduct of a police constable stationed at Wolmaransstad.

He said a case of driving under the influence of alcohol and reckless and/or negligent driving was opened for investigation, as a preliminary investigation revealed that the constable wasn’t authorised to drive a state motor vehicle.

Mokgwabone said;

“As a result, he’ll also face an additional charge of using a motor vehicle without the owner’s consent. Departmental investigation will also be instituted against the member in terms of the SAPS Discipline Regulations.”
