Nigeria gifts CNG passenger buses to FCT civil servants

In a move aimed at easing the transportation burden of civil servants in Nigeria which has been one of the targets of the present administration, the federal government recently unveiled 20 high-tech buses powered by compressed natural gas (CNG) for the workforce in the Abuja federal capital territory (FCT).

Head of the civil service of the federation, Folashade Yemi-Esan, presented the buses at an event held in Abuja.

She said the initiative was a collaboration with FEMADEC Group, a private engineering and construction company, adding that the project was part of the efforts towards improving the welfare of civil servants in Abuja.

The head of service said the gas-powered buses would provide efficient, affordable, and safe transportation, moving civil servants to and from their workplaces, especially those living within the FCT and its environs.

According to her, the federal   government has always sought ways to achieve a healthier and safer environment for civil servants.

“This pillar is targeted at addressing issues of the socio-economic wellbeing of civil servants, which, if not tackled holistically, can impede workers’ efficiency,” she said.

According to her, “the number of buses will be scaled up to 40 in the second phase of the project”.
