The Nigerian Automotive Manufacturers Association (NAMA) has commended Nigeria Auto Journalists Association (NAJA) for instituting an annual training for its members, saying it would go a long way in helping the implementation of the nation’s auto policy.
The Chairman of NAMA, who is also the Managing Director of VON Automobiles Limited, Mr. Tokunbo Aromolaran made the commendation when members of organizing committee for the training paid him a visit in his Victoria Island, Lagos office.
Intimating the NAMA chairman about the training, which has been rescheduled to hold July 29th and 30th 2016, NAJA Training Committee Chairman, Mr. Femi Owoeye said NAJA instituted the training at a time like this to ensure that journalists are well prepared towards contributing their own professional roles to the development of the nation’s auto industry.
“As stakeholders, we motoring journalists are aware of the importance of our role in the area of developmental journalism, a vital ingredients the industry needs to succeed.” He said.
The NAMA chairman commended the initiative, saying capacity building for motoring journalists will go a long way at complementing the efforts of investors and federal government towards successful implementation of the nation’s auto policy.
“Instituting this kind of training at a time like this is commendable. It will no doubt translate to long term benefit for the auto industry, in terms of information flow and quality of information dissemination.” Aromolaran stated.
He appealed to motoring journalists to give more space and timeto reportage of activities, products and services of local auto manufacturers.
“Lots are happening now at various auto assemblies and manufacturing plants in the country. I know you have toured some of the plants, but if you would spare time to pay follow-up visits to the assembly and manufacturing plants, you would be able to see our latest products and so report them to Nigerians. This will go a long way at encouraging local consumption of ourlocally made automobiles and at the long run, accelerate the Nigerian Industrial Development Plan (NIDP).” The NAMA chairman said.
Already, some auto companies and related government agencies have keyed into the training, just as others are being expected to also support the training.
