It will be recalled that in recent times, the Federal government has placed orders for operational trucks and other vehicles for all Ministries, including the Military and Para-Military.

The source in the Nigerian Senate BlackBox Nigeria gathered said, “It was true that we considered suggestions in some quarters to patronise the automobile firms in Nigeria but the fear of their products’ quality, stalled the plans”.
