Deputy senate president, Senator Ekweremadu, has advised his fellow lawmakers to frustrate sales of electric cars in Nigeria so as to ensure crude oil continues to be sold. 

The Senate on Wednesday rejected a bill that sought to phase out the use of petrol cars and introduce electric cars in Nigeria by the year 2035.

The bill was sponsored by Sen Ben Murray-Bruce (PDP, Bayelsa). He told the house that combustion engine cars were part of the cause of global warming and other countries were gradually getting rid of them. 

Senator Ekweremadu however kicked against the bill as he claimed that the bill would not favour Nigeria as an oil producing country.

“We cannot sit here as a parliament and do a legislation to encourage something that will kill our own business as a nation. Besides, in economic sense, we are an oil producing country.

So, we should do everything possible to frustrate the sale of electric cars in Nigeria to enable us to sell our oil.” he said.

In the end, Murray-Bruce was advised to withdraw the bill, which he later did.
