Buhari re-appoints Jelani Aliyu as NADDC DG for another 4 year term

The reappointment was contained in a  letter signed by Boss Mustapha, secretary to the government of the federation, dated April 7th, 2021.

Jelani Aliyu (MFR), world renowed auto designer was first appointed exactly four years ago by the president in recognition of his innovations in the automotive industry particularly his notable contributions in General Motors in the United States of America. The NADDC director-general was re-appointed on the recommendation of the minister for industry trade and investment, Otunba  Adeniyi Adebayo.

Jelani Aliyu was reputed to be the designer of the car that defined General Motors level of achievement after 100 years of existence, and demonstrated the company’s future direction with the design of the Chevrolet Volt Electric Car. His appointment had ignited stakeholders’ confidence in Nigeria’s automotive industry.

Between 2017 and 2021, the NADDC helmsman had implemented a number of new development policies for Nigeria’s automotive industry with big players such as Dangote-Sino Trucks, Innoson, Hyundai Nigeria, Honda and others successfully assembling/producing vehicles in the country.

Aliyu has implemented strategic automotive policies that catapulted Nigeria into the global scene, especially with the recent highly successful unveiling of the first Nigerian assembled electric vehicle and solar-powered charging infrastructure.
