Oando planning electric mass transit ecosystem in Lagos


In April this year, Nigerian energy company Oando signed a Memorandum of Understanding (Mou) with the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA) for the rollout of an electric mass transit ecosystem in Africa’s largest megacity. The MoU was signed with Oando Energy Resources’ subsidiary Oando Clean Energy Ltd (OCEL).

The ecosystem seeks to support electric vehicles and provide the supporting charging infrastructure and service centres for their operations.

“In the immediate to medium term, we will support Lagos State in bridging the public transportation gap, commence the gradual decarbonisation of the transport sector, and in the long term, support the State in achieving optimised operational efficiency and availability of service to Lagosians,” said Ainojie Alexander Irune, COO at Oando Energy Resources.

LAMATA and OCEL intend to form a public-private partnership (PPP) that will support the development of a sustainable road transport system in Lagos. Along with rapid urbanization and population growth, the state is faced with increasing challenges related to its infrastructural capacity.
