With the help of Dangote Sinotruk West Africa, he claims, Nigeria’s journey toward auto manufacturing independence has started. “We want to urge the company to continue exploring the best ways to make Nigeria independent in car assembly and to encourage other participants in the value chain to also jump on board,” the executive said.
Even while the Senate Committee on Industry would prefer a factory setup where practically everything is produced here in Nigeria, Abiru remarked.

He stated: “What the company is doing is one of the ways you can advance the economy of this country. The company has a production line that assembles trucks that are needed for economic activities in Nigeria. For us in the Senate, this is a very good starting point. Our desire is for Completely Knocked Down parts (CKDs) to be manufactured here in Nigeria.
“The Dangote Sinotruk plant will assist the government to preserve foreign exchange that would have been used to import trucks into the country. The company is also providing employment to many Nigerians. What we need on the part of government is to continue to support the company to grow,” Abiru added.JAMB Result

With this goal in mind, we are structured to provide employment opportunities to the masses in line with Dangote Group objectives as well as improve local automobile industry and promote the economic development in Nigeria.”
