The Hub, which consists of Manufacturing, Assembling, Showroom, After Sales Service, and Research and Development Centre, has brought about a new age in which Nigerians’ yearning to drive new automobiles would be satisfied, according to Mr. Oluwatobi Ajayi, Chairman/CEO of NORD Automobile.

This Hub is what I shall refer to as an end-to-end assembly complex. Nigerians pay a high price for cars because they are not made here.

We must adopt a nationalistic perspective and begin with industrial production if we want to obtain cars at reasonable prices.
