WHY NIGERIA MUST SWITCH FROM DIRTY FUELS

WHY NIGERIA MUST SWITCH FROM DIRTY FUELS
Nigerians require cleaner fuel to reduce respiratory infections and other health hazards, the Managing Director, Banner
Energy Limited Nuhu Yakubu, has said.
Speaking during the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) free hand-out of cylinders to Lagos residents in Lagos, he saidcleaner fuels would reduce the negative impact of bad cooking fuels on the  environment and the people.

According to him, cooking with  cleaner fuels, such as Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), will reduce the chances of inhaling dirty fuels, which will in turn, have a ripple effect on the health, finances, and family.
He said the use of firewoods and other dirty methods of cooking is not good.
He said: ‘’Statistics from the World Health Organisation (WHO) revealed that smoke inhalation from the use of dirty fuels is responsible  for more deaths than tuberculosis, Human immuno-deficiency vVrus (HIV) and malaria put together. To combat this, the government  is deepening the use of gas with promotional outreach programmes like this and also giving out cylinders for free.’’
Yakubu said  the LPG clean cook stove/cylinders free hand-out to Lagos residents is a partnership project sponsored by the Lagos State government in collaboration with the LPG sub-group of the Lagos Chamber Commerce Industry (LCCI).

“It is aimed at educating the public on the importance of switching from the use of dirty fuels, such as kerosene and firewood, to cleaner fuels like (LPG), for cooking, heating, autogas, power generation, and other industrial purposes, to deepen the use of gas in Nigeria, towards the reduction of energy poverty.
