FG Plans To Phase Out Kerosene Usage by talktrue1(m): 7:05am On Dec 21, 2012
The Federal Government in collaboration with stakeholders in the petroleum industry has commenced drafting of a new policy to phase out kerosene and firewood usage and replaced them with Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) otherwise known as cooking gas.

The proposed policy tagged National Strategic Policy for LPG, has a five-year timeline to tactically phase out kerosene usage in the country.

The copy of the draft policy, made available to Daily Trust, proposed the launching of a pilot programme to replace kerosene with LPG for poorer households within defined geographical areas in several representative states.

The project will consists of the provision of free or low cost starter kit of cylinder, basic appliances and fuel, phased reduction in kerosene subsidy and simultaneous reduction in kerosene and increase in LPG supply.

Speaking yesterday at the LPG National Strategy Policy review in Abuja, Petroleum Minister Diezani Alison-Madueke said with the current LPG national consumption rate of 110,000 metric tonnes per annum, Nigeria is ranked among the lowest consumers of LPG in Africa.

Why do we like deceiving ourselves in this country sef. Why not make the damn refineries work well and build new ones, and when they are working optimally the products would be made available to nigerians at a cheaper rate which will eventually make it more reasonable to acquire by the poor. This includes harnessing the gas that we flare every day. If it becomes cheap and available why would anyone want o use kerosene or go to the bush to suffer to cut wood to cook. If the right things are done some of our problems will die naturally or atleast be reduced drastically. They need to attack the proBlem from the top and holistically.

this is good move that should have taken place decade ago, because this only require infrastructure to be put in place and then gradually we can moved to the use of electricity as tym goes on inwhich those gas can now b utilised in steam turbine to generate electricity that will be useful commercially and domestically.

So, basically, in five years time, be prepared for LPG aka cooking gas shortage or scarcity. Be prepared to be treated to sights of cylinders everywhere and LPG stations with adjusted meters and attendants that will obtain forcefully your balance and cries for resource allocation, from LPGPS(liquid petroleum gas producing states)and all sorts of what nots. The plan is part of the 29 years plan-don't be fooled.
