As Nigeria celebrates 59th Independence Day anniversary, an indigenous company has said that it is intensifying efforts to begin assembling solar-powered cars by 2020.
Mr Moses Onaja, Chief Executive Officer, Sun Energy Community Development Initiative, made the disclosure on Tuesday during an exhibition of solar products in Ibadan.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the exhibition was aimed at inspiring Nigerians to have access to renewable and clean energy which is environmentally friendly.
“We want to promote the use of renewable energy products in Nigeria to promote a clean and healthy environment.
“What we want to do now is to start assembling solar cars in Nigeria. Let it not just be in China.
“By the special grace of God, we want to see how we can work with the government to ensure that. We are hoping that in 2020 we should have the assembly point here,” he said.
