Enyo, Rungas partner to replace 1.8m unsafe cylinders
As part of its effort to replace about 1.8 million unsafe Liquefied Petroleum Gas, LPG cylinders in Nigeria and promote safer and more economical solutions household usage, Enyo has partnered with Rungas to establish LPG Micro Distribution Centres.
Rungas, an integrated gas trading and infrastructure company will establish the MDC in Enyo retail outlets across Nigeria.
This initiative is in line with implementing the National Gas policy issued by the Federal Government to ensure improved safety, accessibility, and affordability of LPG in Nigeria.
With this partnership, Enyo is proud to be one of the first indigenous companies to set up MDCs across its retail stores.
The MDCs provide consumers the option to swap their gas cylinder at the point of purchase or have it delivered to their doorstep.
Speaking on the initiative, Chief Executive Officer, Enyo Retail and Supply Limited, Abayomi Awobokun said ‘‘We are delighted about this initiative. At Enyo, we are committed to driving consumer needs and providing value.
“This partnership represents another milestone in ensuring that we provide more consumers access to cleaner, safer, and affordable gas. By partnering with Rungas, we also bring in good commercial value and widespread saturation and use of LPG in many homes.
“About 1.8 million steel cylinders in Nigeria have exceeded their lifespan but are still used daily. This has led to explosion incidents, loss of lives and properties. The National Gas policy framework partly enhanced through the establishment of the MDCs will reduce these incidents and ensure stringent monitoring mechanisms to improve safety.”
