According to him, “The President is focused on gas-powered transport, and has released a series of incentives, and the tricycles you are seeing here today come into Nigeria VAT-free and with customs duty exemption. These tricycles will be fueled with gas that is provided as concessionary pricing through the work of NMPDRA and his team, providing more than a 40 percent discount on top of the already existing discount on gas. 

“So, the president is determined, and the PCNGI is working with him. Is determined, Nigeria is determined. We will change this country. We will stop our dependence on dirty fuel. We will focus on using our gas to power this country to power jobs and to power the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) as we move on to a future that is brighter, better, and more reliable for all Nigerians.”
