He also thanked members of the Organised Labour, for their “maturity and patriotism”.
According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the President spoke at the virtual unveiling of the National Gas Expansion Programme and National Auto-gas Roll-out Initiative at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, in Abuja.
The statement was titled: “Economy: President Buhari appreciates Nigerians for patience, urges more use of gas as alternative to petrol”.
His words: “Let me now express my deep appreciation to Nigerians for their patience, and Organised Labour for its maturity and patriotism, as we collectively navigate these global economic and other challenges.’’
The President urged Nigerians to embrace the use of gas as an alternative to fuel.
He noted that the natural gas resources which Nigeria is endowed with, have hitherto been used sub-optimally, as a result of a dearth of gas processing facilities and infrastructural connectivity for effective and optimal domestic utilisation.
