Michael said “It is a project that is a partnership with Israeli, Japanese and Nigerian companies that is taking place in Nigeria.

“What is special about this project is that it is a timely project that combines Israeli technologies, Japanese technologies, Nigerian entrepreneurship and innovation to create a project that will work beautifully.

“We are talking about introducing electronic motorcycles in Nigeria which will be a green and environmentally friendly program.
