Adewale Adeniyi, Comptroller General of the Nigeria Customs Service, has pledged to support locally-made vehicles, noting that supporting such initiative will enhance economic growth.

He spoke after taking a test drive to one of the factories for made-in-Nigeria vehicles.

This was disclosed on their official X account formerly Twitter on Friday.

Adeniyi was quoted as saying, “This is our Nigerian products and we owe ourselves, we owe Nigerians the obligations to give them a chance. We cannot continue to only depend on things that we import, particularly automobiles.

"So every effort is been made through a number of concessions and the only way to support them further, is to see how we can put their product into use and this is the first step that we have taken.


“We will have to consider all the other factors around the procurements and then we will be very happy to strike some partnership deals with them. So this is a very good start. I’m impressed by what I’ve seen. I drove it over a distance and we negotiated good speed, good acceleration.”
