Firm unveils first gas-powered buses in Nigeria

An indigenous energy firm, OMAA, has rolled out Nigeria’s first locally-assembled natural gas-powered buses and are already producing in volumes.

The roll out took place at its facility in Igbo Ukwu near Nnewi, Anambra State, in the presence of Dr. Ishaku Abner, Technical Assistant (Downstream) to the Hon. Minister of State for Petroleum Resources; Mrs. Pat Igwebuike, Special Adviser to the Anambra State Governor on Legal Matters; and Dr. Mohammed M. Ibrahim, Chairman of the National Gas Expansion Programme, NGEP.

OMAA manufactures factory-fitted dual-fuel vehicles to meet the growing demand of vehicles that run on cleaner energy sources within Nigeria and across Africa. The company showcased its facility and demonstrated its ability to cater to energy demands for the transportation and energy industry with natural gas.

The event is coming on the heels of the Federal Government’s declaration of the decade of gas, a commitment to diversify the economy and see Nigeria develop and commercialise its gas resources.
