FG to build Industrial Parks in three states- DG, NADDC

The Director-General of National Automotive Design and Development Council (NADDC), Jelani Aliyu, has said that will build Industrial Parks in Anambra, Osun and Kaduna State.
He revealed that the Federal Government has decided to do this in a bid to foster the domestic production of vehicles
Aliyu said this while speaking during a news interview today in Abuja..
Aliyu spoke on the economic benefits Nigeria will tap from the parks:
“We are building three automotive industrial parks that will be comprehensive facilities where the necessary infrastructure will be provided and investors can easily come in and play.
“As the Federal Government is promoting local production of vehicles, key to that is creating the necessary environment, and we have done that with the automotive policy.
“We are working on making it easier and more advantageous to produce vehicles locally because we believe the difference must be created between vehicles built elsewhere and those built in Nigeria.
“When you built a vehicle in Nigeria, you are giving our youths jobs, empowering Nigerians and creating better life.
“But when you bring in a fully built vehicle, you are taking resources outside Nigeria and that is not adding much value to us our economy.”
