Expert have cautioned Nigerians following the initiative to convert power generators from fuel to gas.
Nigerians turned to the innovation following the hardship caused by the removal of fuel subsidy and the proposed hike in electricity tariff.
However, members of the public are still very sceptical about the safety of running their generators with gas. Many are scared that there could be explosions and have decided not to convert their gasoline generators.
Speaking on the safety of the innovation, A Mechanical Engineer, Kolawole Ogunwemimo, said the use of gas for power generators is cheap, but warned that leakages in Liquefied Petroleum Gas, LPG, are not easily noticed and are prone to explosion if not well handled and maintained.
