Installation of the assembly and production line is crucial

Otunba David Adesanya, Group Managing Director of Elites Logistics & Development Services Ltd., revealed the initiative of the business.

He claimed that the installation of the assembly and production line was a crucial step towards enhancing Nigeria’s security infrastructure, advancing the country’s modern manufacturing sector, and producing a range of socioeconomic advantages for both the country and Africa.

He said one of the primary objectives of this initiative was to significantly reduce the extended delivery time associated with waiting for foreign equipment manufacturing companies to produce and deliver drones to Nigerian clients.

By assembling and producing these drones locally, Elites Logistics & Development Services Ltd aims to provide a swifter response to the security challenges facing the nation by making a wide range of technology solutions available for surveillance, reconnaissance, and other purposes.

Adesanya said:

“Additionally, this endeavour is set to create job opportunities for the country’s large pool of unemployed youth, thereby contributing to a reduction in unemployment rates. It is anticipated that this initiative will not only bolster Nigeria’s Gross Domestic Product but also enhance foreign exchange earnings, as Elites Group plans to export its UAVs and drones to countries in need of these vital security tools.”
