The Federal Government has revealed plans to create three automobile centres in Nigeria across three zones. The centres, to be located in Lagos (Ibadan Zone), Nnewi (Aba Zone) and Kano (Kaduna zone), would train Nigerians in auto maintenance and spare parts production, according to the Minster for Trade and Investments, Olusegun Aganga. At the 2013 training conference on Skill Acquisition and Job Creation by the Industrial Training Fund (ITF) Abuja, the minister said, “As part of our National Industrial Skills Development Programme and the Nigeria Industrial Revolution Plan, the Industrial Training Fund is collaborating with Brazil to develop three automobile training centres and clusters across the country that will meet international standards.” “For us to successfully diversify our economy, create jobs and generate wealth for our country, industrialization remains our only hope for the future. In order to achieve this objective, the country needed to build strong institutions to drive the industrialization process, just as it was done in other industrialized countries,” he said.
