This was followed by N177.59 billion in imports of the product during the second half of 2021. (N116.3bn and N61.2bn, in Q3 and Q4 of 2021 respectively).
During the first six months of 2022, however, just N120,1 billion worth of motorcycles were imported.

“The government’s SABER program builds on the successes of PEBEC. It aims to strengthen the existing PEBEC-National Economic Council subnational interventions by adding incentives, namely results-based financing to the states, and the delivery of wholesale technical assistance–available to all states–to support gaps in reform implementation.”Jamb Result
