A Company simply know as Asahi Brands is planning to introduce nitrogen filled tyres to many vehicle drivers in Kaduna to replace the popular air filled tyers.
The Senior General Manager of the company Jagdish Prasad said air filled tyres were more prone to road accidents due to the high temperatures experienced in the northern part of the country.
Speaking at the opening of the company’s tyre service center during the weekend Mr. Prasad said: “With nitrogen gas, the tyre is safe. When the tyre runs, it becomes hot and hot tyres wear faster and the chances of catching nails or bursting are higher, but when the tyres are filled with nitrogen gas, the tyres life goes up, tyre safety increases and people are more protected”
He also urged Nigerians to promote products that are of high quality so that they can last longer and protect their lives.
When asked what prompted the decision to open a branch in Kaduna, he said: “Opening a tyre service center in Kaduna was informed by a large number of people who own cars in the city because with the right car and the right quality of tyres, road accidents will decrease.”
