The Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, drove a made-in-Nigeria electric car on Tuesday, evoking reactions from Nigerians on social media..
The Presidency shared a video of Osinbajo driving a locally assembled electric car, referred to as ‘Kona’.
He drove the car during the Made-in-Nigeria exhibition event at Eagle Square, Abuja.
The caption of the Facebook post read, “Vice President Yemi Osinbajo driving Kona, Nigerian made electric car, a moment ago, at Eagle Square, Abuja.
“With the VP are the DG (Director General) of the Nigeria Automotive Development Council, Jelani Aliyu and Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Otunba Adebayo.”
Nigerians took to the comment section to share their thoughts on the development.
While some users lauded the government for the innovation, others faulted the development.
Momoh Iya’a commented , “Great one. Let the Federal Government quickly make electricity more stable in Nigeria.”
Another user, Mallam Ibrahim, also commented,”What a great innovation! I suggest there should be mass production of such vehicles.”
Israel Ahmadu commented, “Wow. This is absolutely amazing. We look forward to more innovations.”
Expressing concern, Paul Uchenna wrote, “I stand to be corrected. Is it a good business idea to jettison the use of petrol vehicles when our main source of revenue is crude oil? I know that we actually do not have a viable alternative source of revenue.”
Godwin Chibuikem commented, “We are not buying. Take it back to where it comes from. We don’t have electricity to charge it.”
In agreement, Aondover Solomon said, “Make electricity stable before manufacturing electric cars.”
“To buy an electric car in this country, you may need a generator and fuel in your boot,” Stan Mega commented.
