All is now set for this year’s edition of the Nigeria Auto Journalists Association (NAJA) Training/Capacity Building programme scheduled to take place on Friday, July 29, 2022 at the Golden Tulip Hotel Essential, located on International Airport road, Lagos.

The training Committee said the programme is geared towards the growth of the automotive industry in Nigeria and globally.

This year’s training/capacity programme anchored on the theme: Accelerating Automobile Industry Recovery Strategy in Post COVID-19 Era; is part of the motoring journalists’ contributions towards the growth of Nigeria’s automotive industry.

Well grounded facilitators expected to take charge during the training programmes are Prof Charles Asenime of the Transport department, Lagos State University, Yusuf Aweda Jimoh Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist, Network and Software Engineer.

While Prof Asenime will speak on: Steps for Quick Auto Industry Recovery, Post Covid-19; Engr. Jimoh will take on the participants on: Managing Reports under Remote and Hybrid Workplaces.

Chairperson of the training committee, Ms Julie Chi-Nwaoha said the one-day training programme would enrich and expand the knowledge of motoring journalists in not only the topics slated but in general automotive industry trends.

She added that this edition is going to be very unique as it is coming at a time when most stakeholders are recovering rapidly from the effects of Covid-19 which put the industry on its toes in the past few years.

On his part, Mike Ochonma, chairman, Nigeria Auto Journalists Association noted that the automotive industry remains one of the critical sectors in the country and that is why NAJA is pushing to offer the best in terms of information dissemination.

The annual success story of the training programme started many years ago when Ford Motors South Africa (FMCSA) in collaboration with its local franchisee, Coscharis Motors were the lead sponsors of the first and second editions held in 2016 and 2017, while Stallion Motors Nigeria Limited in collaboration with Nissan Motors South Africa were the lead sponsors of the 2018 edition.
