The Director General of the National Automotive Design and Development Council, NADDC, Jelani Aliyu, has declared that the Nigerian automotive industry has delivered on its mandate after having attracted over N500billion investment into the country.

Mr Aliyu, who made the declaration in a documentary published on the social media handles of the council, added that the achievements were recorded through the implementation of the National Automotive Industry Development Plan, NAIDP.

According to him, the industry now has a combined capacity to produce over 400,000 vehicles per annum.

He said: “Highly committed companies,  local and international,  have invested over N500billion incthe Nigerian automotive industry, setting up factories and assembly plants across the nation, producing various makes and configuration of vehicles.

“These companies have a combined production capacity of over 400, 000 vehicles per annum.

“The NADDC, through the implementation of the National Automotive Industry Development Plan (NAIDP), delivered and the Nigerian automotive industry has delivered.”

The director-general, therefore, called on government MDAs and other agencies across board to begin a massive patronage of the built-in-Nigeria vehicles.

“It is not time for all government MDAs and establishments at the Federal, state and local government levels to deliver; to buy only vehicles built in Nigeria. It is also time for all capable Nigerians to buy vehicles built in Nigeria.

“We also call on companies,  especially those working on government projects and contracts to buy only vehicles built in Nigeria,  so that together we create jobs and build the Nigeria of peace, progress and prosperity,” he added..
