The Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Dr. Okechukwu Enelamah has disclosed that the Federal Government has no intention of reversing the national auto policy started by the Goodluck Jonathan administration in 2013. The Minister who made this known at a one-day stakeholders’ forum on the Nigerian Automobile Industry recently in Lagos said that the government would rather improve on what it met on the ground by taking the contributions of the stakeholders in the auto sector.
“We are not reversing the auto policy. We will build on what has been done and we want stakeholders to tell us what they want us to do to enable the policy work,”he said. According to the Minister, the present government is a listening one and will come up with responses on the issues to be addressed by the stakeholders. The one day stakeholders’ forum put together by the Nigerian Economic Summit Group was attended by Enelamah, the Director General of the National Automotive Design and Development Council, Dr. Aminu Jalal, chieftain of Nigeria auto industry and other stakeholders who gathered to address the grey areas militating against the implementation of the national auto policy.
