The Minister of Interior, RAUF AREGBESOLA, wants Nigeria needs to shift from petroleum-powered vehicles to gas-powered ones if it is to stop spending a lot on fuel subsidy yearly.
According to Aregbesola, the nation needs to convert a chunk of the vehicles on its road from petrol-powered to gas-powered if it is to achieve this.
The minister disclosed this while speaking at the 60th birthday celebration and the book launch of Dr Yunus Akintunde in Ibadan yesterday.
He added that the money the Federal Government was spending on fuel subsidy could be used to transform education and other sectors of the nation.
