NADDC commits to automobile software repairs, manufacturing
The National Automotive Design Development Council (NADDC) has commenced the training of 100 graduate engineers in automobile software repairs and manufacturing to boost the nation’s auto-industry.
The training, which cuts across the six geopolitical zones of the country, is being organised by the NADDC in collaboration with MIDAs and NFX of South Korea.
Speaking at the opening ceremony in Abuja, the Director General, NADDC, Jelani Aliyu, said the major goal of the training is to expose young Nigerian engineering graduates to modern auto soft wares that will enable them to repair and manufacture spare parts for the automotive industry.
According to him, Nigeria can no longer sit aloof, watching other nations manufacture various types of vehicles as well as their spare parts only for us to become consumers.
“We are, therefore, taking the bull by the horns to train our young graduate engineers from different backgrounds in auto software repairs in manufacturing and assembling. By this, we hope to bring the necessary engineering knowledge to bear on our youths so that they can also use the opportunity to create jobs and improve our economy.”
Represented by Director, RD & D Department, NADDC, Fidelis Achiv, he said the selection of participants was not only competitive, but transparent to bring the best out of Nigeria’s male and female engineers.
In his remarks, the Director of Training and Supervision, NADDC, Lawrence Isah, urged participants to pay attention as the training progressed.
He said: “This training is for two weeks. The council has put everything in place for participants to benefit maximally. In short, we made provisions for their transportation, hotel accommodation and feeding for the two weeks.”
