The Federal Government finalized a contract with indigenous automaker Innoson on Wednesday for the provision of 21 vehicles to the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC).
At the conclusion of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting at Aso Rock Villa, which was presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Information Minister Lai Mohammed revealed this to reporters.
The “deal was in favor of Messrs Innoson Manufacturing Company for the price of N660,422,220 and it’s made up of 20 pick-up trucks and 1 City Bus,” he confirmed.
He said, “The contract was awarded to Innosons Motors in the spirit of encouraging our local industries.”
Isa Pantami, the minister of communications and digital economy, also received approval from the FEC to build broadband infrastructure for tertiary and higher education institutions, as well as micro, small, and medium-sized businesses, throughout the six geopolitical zones.
The contract was given to a number of organizations for N16, 709, 853,000 since the administration is passionate about expanding the broadband infrastructure, according to Mohammad.
The Ministry of Communications also received approval for the N668 million in supplies, installations, and upgrades for a brand-new set of IT communications equipment and furniture for emergency communication centers around the nation.
In addition, the FEC ratified the International Labour Organization’s Migrant Workers Supplementary Provision after receiving a memo from Chris Ngige, the minister of labor and employment, and Nigeria ratified the 1975 Convention.
