  1. Nigerian government and private industries should accelerate development of iron and steel so that implementation of the 6 clusters Automotive parts industry can be achieved. The initial phase SKD from other countries conform with the earlier agreement with the federal government to fast-track the Automotive policy .But going forward, it is very important to start manufacturing over 70% autmotive parts in the country. Innoson Automotive industry has demonstrated that it is possible for Nigeria to become a global player in automotive and other manufacturing sectors, capable of creating millions of jobs.
    Nigeria’s population and its strategic position in the continent, compared to other African countries and the rest of the world is an advantage.
    To this end, No country ever gets industrialized without iron and steel development and Engineering , technical education .The present administration should, therefore, strengthen and improve on what the last administration had scored very high point.
