Auto stakeholders discuss industry challenge at NAJA training

Critical stakeholders in the auto industry in Nigeria are to rub minds on challenges facing the sector towards galvanizing it to contribute significantly to the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

The forum is the annual Nigerian Auto Journalists (NAJA) capacity building and training workshop designed to boost human capacity for journalists reporting the automotive sector in the country.

It would be recalled that while Ford Motors South Africa (FMCSA) in collaboration with Coscharis Motors – its local franchisee – were the lead sponsors of the first and second editions held in 2016 and 2017 with its global Driving Skill For Life (DSFL) programme domesticated in Nigeria, Stallion Motors Nigeria Limited with Nissan Motors South Africa emerged as the lead sponsor of the 2018 programme.

The 2019 programme would be segmented into sessions cutting across test-drive, safety, automotive, tyre maintenance, lubricants, auto insurance, photography and government policy.

The organizers of the capacity building /training committee, who spoke through Julie Chi-Nwaoha said, “as a forum we feel it is important that journalists writing about the automotive sector are well informed; they must be well educated and empowered to write effectively without fear and this is what many auto brands see to support the programme.”
