Stallion Nissan Presents Made in Nigeria Vehicles To FG

President Goodluck Jonathan has applauded the initiative of Stallion Nissan Motors Nigeria (Stallion NMN) as he took delivery of the first five ‘Made in Nigeria’ Nissan vehicles produced at the company’s plant in Lagos. The vehicles which include three Nissan Patrol SUVs, Nissan Almera (Sunny) saloon car and Nissan NP 300 pick-up were handed over to the president recently in Abuja.
Jonathan said the first made in Nigeria vehicles are a demonstration of the proficiency of local investors’ aptitude to the potency of a genuine policy to revamp the automotive industry and leverage the status of the economy while enhancing job creation.

“I’m quite happy that Nissan has demonstrated the reality of exporting cars from Nigeria is possible, which suggest we can soon as a nation export vehicles to other parts of the world. We thank Nissan for making the best of the new automotive policy which is part of our agenda to strengthen the private sector and make it a hub for job creation. Government alone can’t create jobs,” says President Jonathan.
