NATA Chief Claims That Ajaokuta Steal Company Has Enough Steel To Produce Cars

Chairman of the Nigeria Automobile Technician Association (NATA)  Lagos State Chapter in an interview with newsmen on Tuesday in Lagos has said that Ajaokuta Steel Company is enough for the country to produce its own cars.

‘’Assembling cars in Nigeria at this point in time should not be; Ajaokuta steel company is enough for the country to produce its vehicles . “What the government needs to do is to review the curriculum of polytechnics and technical colleges and channel it towards producing Nigeria model vehicles in a way to meet up with the demand,’’ he said.

Fayehun also noted that the country was blessed with human and natural resources, which made it easier for the country to produce its vehicles. He said that car manufacturers could depend on the available resources, as the country needed to diversify its economy towards auto technology rather than depending on oil revenue only.

The chairman added that Nigerian technicians were good in repairing vehicles of all kind, adding that with the help of government policy, it would be easier to manufacture locally made vehicles. Fayehun also advised the government to fast track the development of Ajaokuta Steel Company to allow technicians have access to steel for production.
