The ministry of transport has hinted of plans of purchasing electric buses in order to fight pollution.

Ghanaiantimes.com.gh reports that the electric buses will be fuelled with Compressed Natural Gas (CNG).

According to the deputy minister of transport, Danny Titus Glover, the new measure will help phase out the use of diesel-powered urban buses within the short to medium term and the long term.

He added that the government was collaborating with the African Development Bank (AfDB) to aid it to access funds from the Green Climate Fund for the purchase of the electric buses.

He was speaking on Wednesday, March 20, 2019, at a roundtable discussion on Ghana’s Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), to address climate change at the ongoing African Climate Week in Accra.

The NDCs are national climate action plans developed in line with the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change. They are 31 targets that cut across sectors such as transport and energy and are to be implemented from 2020 to 2030.
