New NADDC Boss Promises Youths Empowerment in Automotive Design


[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he newly appointed Director-General of the National Automotive Design and Development Council (NADDC), Mr. Jelani Aliyu, MFR, has promised to create a new generation of automobile designers in Nigeria.

In his inaugural speech made available to Motoring World on Thursday, Mr. Aliyu stressed the importance of innovating, designing and developing automotive and transportation solutions that are in tune with the nation’s culture, climate, geography and economic structure.

He stated: “We shall empower our talented youths with the necessary professional training in contemporary automotive design and development, leveraging the most sophisticated technology, so they will innovate, design and develop automotive and transportation solutions that are in tune with our culture, climate, geography and economic structure.”

Aliyu also outlined the importance of encouraging and supporting the nation’s auto manufacturers towards leveraging advanced technology.

In his words, the nation’s “manufacturing stakeholders must be encouraged and supported to leverage advanced technology in providing the most applicable, safest, most durable and cost-effective vehicles.”

“The NADDC,” he stated, “is committed to identifying progressive technical partners and investors from around the world who can work with us to develop the automotive sector potential in Nigeria.”

In his view, Nigeria must be defined by dreams and aspirations and not by its current challenges.

“They are not who we are,” he pointed out, adding, “We are bigger than them. We must be defined by our dreams and aspirations; we must be defined by what we can achieve. We must be defined by a better tomorrow, nothing is impossible, there are no impossibilities, there is only a better Nigeria to build.”

It would be recalled that Aliyu, a renowned auto designer from General Motors in United States, was appointed by the Federal government to head the NADDC, following the retirement of Engr. Aminu Jalal.
