Dangote Group has signed an agreement with Automaker, Transit Support Services Limited, for the supply of Shacman trucks.

Dangote Group has signed an agreement with Automaker, Transit Support Services Limited, for the supply of Shacman trucks being assembled at the Anambra Motor Manufacturing Company Limited’s (ANAMMCO) factory in Emene, Enugu.

This comes shortly after the group injected about N63 billion for the purchase of 3,500 units of trucks aimed at reviving the ANAMMCO plant.

Shacman trucks

The disclosure was made by the Chairman of Transit Support Services Ltd, Frank Nneji during a tour of the auto plant.

Why this matters: The auto plant had been dormant for many years until Dangote Group signed an agreement for the production of Shacman trucks. The production of the vehicles led to the recall of all ANAMMCO staff, who for years, have not been doing anything as the company went moribund.

The agreement has reportedly benefited the people in the area immensely through job creation and training of young school leavers.

According to Nneji, the revival of the auto plant and the investment of Dangote has not only benefitted company but has also returned the pride of the South-East economy, which the ANAMMCO auto plant represents.

“About 90 per cent of trucks produced here are for Dangote. Right now at the dump, we have about 300 units. Since last year, we have done 800 units. Dangote Group since inception has bought about 3,500 units from us. It also patronises the Shackman trucks for its refinery currently being built in Lagos,” he said.

Nneji added that the project had also kept busy the Onne port which was dormant for many years. He explained that the port is used for the delivery of vehicle components supplied to the ANAMMCO plant by its partner from China, Shaanxi Heavy Duty Automobile Import & Export Company.

Also speaking was the General Manager, Corporate Communications of Dangote Group, Mr Sunday Esan, who made it known that the quality of the Shacman trucks was satisfactory, as he assured Nneji of continuous patronage.

“Dangote Group is expanding. Apart from the cement, sugar and salt factories, among others, we’re starting a petroleum refinery, the biggest in Africa. All these will require a high number of trucks. It is a long-term relationship,” he said.

      Good business relationship, I am highly impressed that the Refinery will be the biggest in terms of capacity in Africa. The recall of many of the staff of the moribund motor company is also a good development as this will definitely reduce unemployment in Nigeria. Definitely the establishment of the Refinery and the resuscitating of the motor company will definitely improve the Nation’s economy to some reasonable levels. Thanks to Dangote group, the reason for the advancement of Dangote group, is because Aliko the President of the group, has zero tolerance for nepotism. Good deals good business !!!

    The reason why Dangote group was able to achieve these great feats, is because Aliko, the President of the group, has zero tolerance for nepotism and mediocrity.

      Because he is reviving a moribund factory in your area he is now idolized. If it was a company marked to be privatized in your area the narrative would have changed.

    Motor Assembly plant should be careful and always give a certified proof of vehicle with worthiness and Dangote should sign appropriately for documentation… Because tomorrow or in the Next coming years propaganda might arise…

    ALL SOUND GOOD,what I saw is that Dangote group did a built this oil refinery distiller tower a gaint distiller in china and they shipped to Nigeria,i can give you a Nigerian company located in lagos who can build this 600,000 oil refinery distiller,now there is no excuses for the existence of boko haram,boko haram is a symptom of bad governance and incompetence. to me boko haram means self-realization of one’s existence,THE RIGHT OF ONE BEING WHAT AND WHO IS.
    NOW,the govt is compressing their right of their life and their culture,now they are using violence and terror as a venue in voicing their grivances and frustration,i think the firing of the service chief is wrong,the chief of army staff hails from Borno state.his father was a soldier and his father did served in the british army and served in Burma.
    It is too little and too late to sack service chief now

    This are the kind of people that ought to be entrusted with the leadership of this country. People who are free and not fighting perceived or imaginary war in their lives. People who honestly believe in Nigeria and works genuinely hard for her progress.
    Kudos to Aliko Dangote and the management of ANAMMCO.

    This is nice one anyway and i thank the Igbos who are share holders in the company for making the company look this way after all Igbos are one of the big patronizers of Dangote product.Buhari shld stop pursuing the so called looters rather he should persuade them to bring back their loot and invest in our country so that our children will have jobs.Anyone that refuses to bring his or her own is the one that will be prosecuted by so doing you can see that government will spend less in prosecutions and development will be faster.Then any one that loot or try to be looter be dealt with seriously henceforth

    Good move by Dangote. Even if he ends up buying ANAMMCO, it is better than it remaining moribund.
    At least, the jobs of many will be assured.
    There is yet hope for Nigeria.
    I encourage our other billionaires to consider reviving some the moribund textile mills.

    I’m really excited by this development. What is good is good and good will always reign over evil. I encourage Nigerians to rise above ethnic sentiment and religious discrimination. If we have jobs, peace and progress in our nation, the people rejoice. Congratulations to ANAMMCO and DANGOTE group for this historic deal. God bless Nigeria.

Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire has stated the side effects of the COVID-19 vaccines, which he said is mild.

The minister disclosed this during the live broadcast when President Muhammadu Buhari took his vaccine shot on Saturday.

According to the Minister, the reactions are usually mild and only few people had complained of mild pain in the part of the body they got the shot.

He said, “It is not everybody that complained of reactions/side effects but few had complained of mild pain at the part of the body they got the shot.

”Usually manufacturing vaccines take not less than 4 years but this only took about 1 year, which is the reason some people are apprehensive about the vaccines. This was manufactured in the United Kingdom and has been certified.”

Ehanire, explained that the jab is painless as a narrow gauge syringe was used with a small quantity injected in the upper arm.

He added that the after-effects are mild but accompanied by little discomfort in the area that was injected.

Present at the brief ceremony were the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) Mr Boss Mustapha; Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed; the Chief of Staff to the President, Professor Ibrahim Gambari and other members of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, senior government officials and journalists.
