Rotarians endorse GAC Motor, as parties sign deal on vehicle purchase
Rotary International District 9110, made up of over 4000 members, in Lagos and Ogun states, have entered into a partnership with Choice International Group (CIG) Motors, following the signing of a memorandum of understanding for the purchase of the GAC brand of vehicles at dedicated Rotary prices.
The deal, which was sealed in Lagos, covers all GAC auto models marketed in Nigeria by CIG Motor. The General Manager, Commercial Department at CIG Group, Jubril Arogundade, said the special discount covers all vehicle sales.
Specifically, he said CIG Motors, representing GAC Motor in Nigeria, would make the vehicles available to the Rotary International District 9110 members at a special discount.
“For every car they purchase from us, Rotary will walk away with a special rebate and they will enjoy our robust after-sales package,” he said. He said the auto company had been considered one of the most successful in Nigeria due to its robust and dynamic after-sales service.
Arogundade said: “We are a successful auto company because we invest hugely in after-sales. For instance, for every vehicle we sell, we have its service and needed parts for the next four years, and even beyond.
“We have a dynamic after-sale service; our workshops operate for 13 hours, between 7 am and 8 pm”. According to him, the CIG is more than a business group, “there is also the charity arm,” adding that the Chairman of the group, Chief Diana Chen, believes in giving back to society through the promotion of Nigerian culture and talent as well as sponsorship of a number of sporting events.
The District Governor of Rotary International District 9110, Mrs. Omotunde Lawson, said the humanitarian group was excited about the new partnership and commended CIG Motors for the package.
She said Rotary International is open to strategic partnerships with recognized firms and organizations that would provide a win-win offer to all parties.
“This facility for us to buy vehicles from CIG Motors at a dedicated Rotary price with other package is very commendable,” she said.
CIG also distributes the JMC and Dongfeng auto brands and it is expected that the deal will eventually be extended to other brands distributed by the CIG group including Lontor and Gree.
