1 month ago

UPDATE: Governor of Lagos State, Mr Jide Sanwo-olu today visited the GAC Car Assembly Plant at Ogba, WEMCO Road Lagos. Recall that Mr Governor unveiled the New Taxi Scheme called “LAG RIDE” on 4th March 2021, where he announced the plan for the Car Assembly Plant.

The Vehicle Assembly Plant in Lagos was part of the bilateral agreements reached by the State Government and Chinese Investors’ Community in November 2019 during Governor @jidesanwoolu’s business trip to China.

Facilities already in place in the Plant include wheel balancing chamber, spraying booths, maintenance hall, noise testing chambers, sprinkling arena to test for roof leakage, staff lounge and auto parts warehouse.

Governor @jidesanwoolu said the automobile assembly plant would create employment opportunities for local skilled workers, as 95 per cent of the workforce would be sourced locally.


Some of the parts used in the assembly plant would be sourced locally, including air conditioning system, valves, ball joints, bolts and nuts, and batteries.

The plant is expected to produce 5,000 units of new vehicles when it becomes operational.

IBILE Holdings Limited, a State-owned corporation, is supervising the investment on behalf of the Lagos State Government.


This Assembly Plant, was a six-bay warehouse, on a land size of 39,000sqm, which belonged to @lsdpcofficial. It was relinquished for the Plant as part of the inter-agency cooperation in the State in support of its socio-economic development.
