Race for 2023 NAJA Auto Awards Kicks Off, Event Holds Dec 14

The Nigeria Auto Journalists Association (NAJA) has slated its annual Auto Industry awards for Thursday, December 14 at the prestigious Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.

The NAJA auto awards annually celebrate the best players in the Nigerian auto industry, acknowledging the marketing achievements in both business-to-business and business-to-consumer markets of the nation’s auto industry.

Winners in various categories, who will be announced at the event are determined by the nation’s seasoned auto journalists from the print, electronic and digital media.

Speaking on the awards, Chairman of the 2023 Planning Committee, Rasheed Bisiriyu, said the awards celebrate the nation’s automotive franchise dealers for their exceptional business performance as well as indigenous automakers/ assemblers for their efforts in helping to develop the local auto industry.

According to him, a panel composed of prominent auto editors and other top journalists in the industry are currently sifting through the list of nominees with their performance over the year to decide the eventual winners in various categories.

He explained: “The award emphasizes the significant contributions dealers/entrepreneurs make in positioning their brands for acceptability, especially in the area of after-sale service.

“While the industry is recovering, many buyers are tightening their belts; so, when it comes to new cars, affordability and low maintenance costs are more important than ever. The Awards reflect that.

“But it doesn’t mean that cheap cars get an easy pass. As in the past years, our category winners need to be the best across board. There is a huge number of talents on the show this year, and our expert judges will work until the 11th hour to decide the worthy winners.”

Also commenting on the forthcoming awards, the Chairman of NAJA, Mike Ochonma, expressed appreciation to all the stakeholders who had over the years been supportive of all NAJA activities.

The event, he explained, is to keep encouraging excellence and celebrating the best and the brightest of the stakeholders, their products and services in the country.

“NAJA Auto Awards are a prestigious event that recognizes and celebrates the achievements of the best and brightest in this industry, from suppliers to dealers and service providers,” he added.
