Customs Boss Test-drive Truck Produced In Nigeria By Mikano Motors, Endorses Locally-made Vehicles

The Comptroller General of Nigeria Customs Service, Adewale Adeniyi, recently endorsed locally-made vehicles after test-driving a Maxus pickup truck marketed by Mikano Motors. During Mikano’s visit to Customs headquarters in Abuja on April 17th, Adeniyi expressed his impression of the vehicle, emphasizing the need to support Nigerian products for economic empowerment.

In a video posted on the Nigeria Customs Service’s official social media platforms, Adeniyi highlighted the importance of giving Nigerian products a chance and reducing dependence on imports, particularly in the automotive sector. He underscored the significance of initiatives to promote local manufacturing and encouraged further partnerships to support indigenous companies.

Speaking during the visit, Hassan Ghandour, the sales manager at Mikano Motors, emphasized the company’s commitment to providing high-quality products with extensive warranties and after-sales services. He showcased a range of vehicles, including sedans, SUVs, and pickup trucks, tailored to meet the needs of Nigerian consumers with tropicalized specifications suited to local conditions.

Ghandour outlined Mikano Motors’ dedication to affordability and customization, ensuring that their vehicles are not only competitively priced but also designed to withstand Nigeria’s climate and road conditions. He emphasized the company’s focus on customer satisfaction, offering warranties of up to six years or 200,000 kilometers and comprehensive after-sales support, including spare parts availability.

The endorsement of locally-made vehicles by the Nigeria Customs Service reflects a broader push towards economic empowerment and supporting domestic industries. By promoting Nigerian products and fostering partnerships with indigenous companies like Mikano Motors, stakeholders aim to stimulate local manufacturing, create jobs, and contribute to the nation’s economic development.
