KWASU Engineers Convert Petrol Engine Bus to Electric Bus

Date: 2023-08-25

Engineers of Kwara State University's Centre for Sustainable Energy have successfully converted a petrol-engine bus to an electricity driven one.

The Acting Vice-Chancellor, Professor Shaykh-Luqman Jimoh while presenting the bus to the Kwara State Governor, Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq on Thursday, August 24, 2023 at the State Government House in Ilorin said the University was constantly in tune with realities in the society through the innovation of products and ideas to support the vision of the State Government to advance the lives of the peoples.

ProfJimoh added that the bus was conceptualised and designed with realities of electricity supply in the country, which made the bus more efficient and effective.

The Governor who was visibly excited, described the innovation as "a clear indication that we are fast turning the corners as our country steadily joins the world to reduce over reliance on fossil fuel and adopt cleaner energy".

Mallam AbdulRahman noted that the innovation was coming at an excellent time, especially when governments at all levels within the country were making different efforts to ease the challenges brought by the removal of subsidy on petrol.

He commended the management of the University and the team of engineers led by the Head of Technical Unit of the Centre for Sustainable Energy and Chief Technologist at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, AbdulAzeez Akande for expediting the realisation of the electric bus.

"I commend the Acting Vice Chancellor, Professor Shaykh Lukman Jimoh, who led the team to Government House Thursday morning, all of them driven in the electric vehicle."

The governor assured the team of the State Government's constant support as they do more to deploy technology and their own will-power to make life better.

Meanwhile, the Kwara State Governor has directed the engineering team of Kwara State University, Malete, to convert some government vehicles to use electricity for immediate deployment on campuses for the benefits of students.
