Open Letter To Gov. AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq

Dear Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq,

Urgent Need to Engage with Local Transporters for CNG Fuel System Implementation

I hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. I am writing to draw your attention to a pressing matter that requires your intervention and support. I humbly urge you to engage with the local transporters in our state and advocate for the implementation of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fuel systems for their vehicles. Such an initiative has the potential to revive their dying businesses, mitigate the adverse effects of skyrocketing petrol prices, and alleviate the burden of transportation fees on Kwarans.

As we are all aware, the high cost of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) has had a detrimental impact on our local transport sector. The transporters, who play a vital role in facilitating the movement of people and goods within our state, have been severely affected. Many of them are struggling to sustain their businesses due to the exorbitant fuel prices.

By interceding on behalf of the transporters and championing the adoption of CNG fuel systems, you would be providing them with a viable and cost-effective alternative. CNG is a cleaner and more affordable fuel option compared to petrol. Its implementation would significantly reduce the operational costs for transporters, enabling them to remain competitive in the market and continue serving the people of Kwara State.

Moreover, the adoption of CNG fuel systems for public transportation would have numerous benefits for Kwarans. The reduced cost of fuel would allow for a negotiation of lower transportation fees, bringing much-needed relief to our citizens who rely on public transportation for their daily commutes. This would not only contribute to the economic well-being of the people but also alleviate the financial strain faced by many families in our state.

Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, I implore you to lend your unwavering support to this cause. Engage with the local transporters, understand their challenges, and work collaboratively towards implementing the CNG fuel system. By doing so, you would not only be revitalizing their businesses but also fostering sustainable and affordable transportation options for the people of Kwara State.

I am confident that your proactive efforts in this regard will yield positive results and pave the way for a brighter future for our local transport sector and the overall welfare of Kwarans. Your leadership and commitment to the well-being of our state are greatly appreciated, and I have no doubt that you will prioritize the interests of our citizens in this matter.
