The Federal Government is collaborating with a major manufacturing hub in Turkey to drive Nigeria’s automobile sector.
The Director-General, National Automotive Design and Development Council (NADDC), Jelani Aliyu, made the disclosure on Tuesday.
The official commented on his recent working visit to the Mayor of Sakarya in Turkey, Ekrem Yuce.
“The visit was to deliberate on potential areas of Turkish collaboration and investment in the Nigerian automotive sector,” he told NAN.
The areas include high-performance agricultural tractors, electric vehicles and auto components, among others.
NADDC has a mandate to design and implement policies, programmes and strategies for a competitive and diversified private sector.
