A Nigerian company in Ijebu Ode, Ogun state, is said to be manufacturing some of the best armoured personnel carriers for the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) and the Nigerian Army.
The company, which is said to be manufacturing the carriers with most of its contents sourced locally, has been patronised by the government of Ogun state, which bought 15 carriers for the police.
The disclosure was made by a Twitter user identified as Omasoro Ali Ovie, who said industrialisation is the only pathway for prosperity in Nigeria.
In an earlier report by Legit.ng, award-winning Nigerian artiste, Folarin Falana popularly known as Falz, reacted to the made-in-Nigeria armoured carrier.
He said: "This is the Nigeria we want to see. More emphasis on made in Nigeria.”
Also reacting, comedian Ali Baba shared the photo with a caption in which he implied that the country is making progress bit by bit.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) warned that Nigeria as a country should get prepared for another cycle of recession by mid 2020 and the third quarter of 2021.
The forum asked state governors to work hand in hand to boost the economy in tandem with the global best practices.
While speaking in Abuja at the induction of new and returning governors, the governor of Zamfara state and NGF chairman, Abdulaziz Yari, told the newly elected and returning governors to prepare for the possibility of another cycle of recession.
Yari also urged state governors to work harder to boost their Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) to enable them to execute more projects and reduce over-dependence on the federation account as the means of promoting the social well being of their people.

According to him, the NGF and the National Economic Council (NEC) led by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo have agreed that borrowing was never a reliable alternative to solving economic problems, urging the incoming ones and other tiers of government to multiply revenue generation bases as that would help change the course of doing government business for the overall interest of the people.
