The Federal Government on Thursday announced that it would introduce solar-powered tricycles, popularly known as Keke, in order to gradually phase out petrol engine tricycles currently being used as means of transportation across the country.
It said the solar-powered tricycles would be showcased at a forthcoming expo in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital, in December this year.
The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, said the government was working assiduously on introducing the solar-powered tricycles, which are clean and non-polluting with zero emissions.
The minister, who was represented by the Chairman, Committee on Short Code Social Media App, Mrs. Anthonia Ekpa, stated this when the committee paid a courtesy visit to road transport unions.
