House of Reps Investigates Collapse of Automobile Assembly Plants

The House of Representatives has decided to form an ad hoc committee to study the collapse of the country’s automotive assembly plants in order to provide informed suggestions for their rapid resurrection. 

The parliamentarians’ resolve came after the plenary yesterday approved a motion submitted by Hon. Abdullahi Ibrahim Ali Halims. 

Moving on, Halims remembered that from the 1970s until the early 1990s, vehicle manufacturers such as Volkswagen, Peugeot, and Leyland had operational assembly plants in various locations around the nation, contributing to the economy.  

He did, however, say that, given Nigeria’s current economic challenges, it was necessary to resurrect the country’s dormant auto-mobile assembly plants by negotiating with investors interested in investing in Nigerian auto-mobile plants, which would save billions of dollars spent on vehicle importation. 

The House instructed its Committee on Legislative Compliance to oversee compliance after passing the measure. 

The lawmakers also mandated their Committees on Population, National Planning, and Economic Development to invite the Chairman of the National Population Commission to explain the experience of its personnel in conducting the Enumeration Area Demarcation (EAD) and discuss ways to mitigate the challenges, according to a motion sponsored by Hon. Preye Oseke.  

The House also directed its Commerce, Petroleum Resources (Upstream and Downstream), and Industries Committees to work with state chambers of industry, mines, and agriculture to ensure that foreign and domestic companies and enterprises operating in states participate in the NPC’s programs and projects.  

In addition, parliamentarians passed a Bill for an Act to Establish a National Council on Special Education Needs (NCSEN) for second reading in the plenary, ensuring full integration of people with special needs into society. Hon. Ahmed Munir is the sponsor of the proposed law.
