Nigeria bans two-stroke engines, adopts Euro II emissions standards from 1996
Aminu Jalal, director-general of the council, says Euro II standards will apply to vehicles manufactured in Nigeria, as well as to all imported automobiles. Additionally, Jalal says that no manufacturer or importer shall be allowed to assemble a vehicle that makes use of two-stroke engine. We'd assume this two-stroke stipulation doesn't apply to scooters and motorcycles.
Euro II was implemented back in 1996, so Nigeria is most certainly behind the times. Come January 2015, Nigeria will adopt the slightly more stringent Euro III standards, which went into effect in Europe in 2000. Given the choice between dated emissions standards and Nigeria's current, non-existent guidelines, we know which ones we'd choose.
