Nigeria is building three device testing centres, and they are 85 per cent complete, says Mr Jelani Aliyu, the Director-General, National Automotive Design and Development Council, NADDC.

Aliyu stated this on Tuesday while speaking at the ongoing 39th Gulf Information Technology Exhibition (GITEX) holding in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The event is an annual show that has over 200,000 technology interests and more than 145 countries in participation.

The NADDC boss said that participating in GITEX would enable the country to leverage on technology to improve the lives of Nigerians, News Agency of Nigeria reports.

According to him, developing standard infrastructure for indigenous production of vehicles will create jobs, grow the economy and give Nigerians the opportunity to explore their potential.

“We are about to ensure standards with automotive components, cars and to that effect, we are about 85 per cent complete on the construction of three automotive device testing centres across the country.

“In Zaria, we will be testing materials that will be used for automotive production, in Enugu, we will be testing components that will go into vehicles and in Lagos, we have an emission testing lab for testing of emissions.

“By the time these centres are fully running, vehicles or components sold in Nigeria would have been tested, certified and approved, otherwise it will be illegal to have that in Nigeria,” he said.
