Forward Recommendations On The National Automotive Policy - Senator Olugbenga Ashafa

Senator Gbenga Ashafa, Chairman Senate Committee on Land Transport

Senator Olugbenga Ashafa, the Senate Committee Chairman on Land Transport on Tuesday 4thOctober, 2016 at the 2 day National Workshop for Chief Executives of Mass Transit Organisations on the Nigeria Automotive Policy, urged the organisers to break away from the culture of hoarding communiqu├ęs generated from such forums.

While delivering his good will message, the Senator commended the Nigerian Institute for Transport Technology and the National Automotive and Design Development Council for putting together the all too important National Workshop.

Speaking further, the Senator Representing Lagos East stated that “the functionality of our National Automotive policy side by side our Mass Transit System is very important to our economy hence; this workshop is timely as it directly affects the pressing challenge that we face as a country today, which is the challenge of our economy.”

Ashafa identified the important issues that the Workshop needed to interrogate to include “how to ensure that the National Automotive Policy remains a viable document on one hand and how to ensure that the local manufacturing sector remains attractive to the investor (both local and foreign).”
The Senator concluded by calling on the organisers of the workshop to ensure that any recommendations requiring the action of the Senate Committee on Land Transport, should be forwarded to the committee without hesitation. In his own words, “I have observed a critical missing link in how we make use of our body of knowledge after the brilliant ventilation of ideas at such a forum as this. We have the habit of keeping the resolutions to ourselves without forwarding same to relevant arms of government for execution. Even when we do, we do not follow through to ensure that each arm takes responsibility of his part of the job. I therefore urge that if at the end of this workshop, you come up with any recommendations which you believe the Senate Committee on Land Transport should push in form of a legislation or a legislative agenda, kindly forward same to us.”
