Dangote Invests N63bn In Transit Support Services, Buys 3,500 Trucks

Published

Dangote Group has entered into a long-term agreement with an Enugu-based automaker, Transit Support Services Limited, for the supply of Shacman trucks being assembled at the Anambra Motor Manufacturing Company Limited’s factory in Emene, Enugu.

Already, the group has purchased 3,500 trucks from the automaker worth N63bn, according to the Managing Director of the Transit Support Services, Mr Frank Nneji.

Nneji, who spoke with journalists on Saturday after a facility tour of the truck assembly line at the ANAMMCO plant, said the supplies amounted to over 90 per cent of all Shackman trucks assembled at the factory since the revival of the plant after a long period of abandonment.

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.

He said the project had also kept busy the Onne port, which was dormant for many years.

According to him, 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.

Nneji, who is also the MD of ABC Transport Plc, the franchise holder of the Shacman Nigeria, said the Dangote/Shacman truck deal had benefited the people in the area immensely through job creation and training of young school leavers.

He said, “This has been of tremendous benefit for the people in the South-East. For more than seven years, this place was shut down.

“There was no activity until Shackman came and we made an agreement with the Shacman Group and we started skeletally.”

He added, “We were only able to start full production of trucks when we offered logistics solutions to the Dangote Group. That was in 2016 when we started the first agreement for 500 trucks.

“With this, many workers of ANAMMCO who had been at home had to come back to work; some local suppliers of lubricants, electrolyte and the rest had to return to business.”

Nneji noted that the resuscitation of the ANAMMCO plant was made possible through the establishment of the auto policy which encouraged local production of automobiles

The General Manager, Corporate Communications, Dangote Group, Mr Sunday Esan, said Dangote was satisfied with the quality of Shacman trucks and assured of continued patronage.

Olympic sprint legend Usain Bolt has become a father for the first time after welcoming the birth of a baby girl with partner Kasi Bennett, reports said Monday.

Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness appeared to confirm the birth of Bolt’s daughter in a social media post.

“Congratulations to our sprint legend Usain Bolt and Kasi Bennett on the arrival of their baby girl!” Holness wrote on Twitter.

Local media reports said the couple’s daughter was born on Sunday.

No further details were immediately available.

Bolt, 33, had revealed he was expecting a daughter with Bennett on social media in March, jokingly warning any future suitors to steer clear of his daughter.

“Any man! Any boy! Don’t play with me!” the eight-time Olympic gold medallist quipped.

Bolt, the world record holder at 100m and 200m, retired from athletics in 2017 after a decade of dominance in men’s sprinting.

At the 2016 Olympics, Bolt became the only man to win the 100m and 200m titles at three consecutive Olympics.

I will collect money from my Ex, there was no Ex that didnt ‘CHOP’ my money – Tope Mark-Odigie

In a programme tagged ‘Hot Topic’ on TVC’s chat fest show,Your view,with guest speaker,Tope Mark-Odigie,a hot question was asked ” Would you take money from your ex even when you’re married?

This was in response to a man who cried out online that his wife has been collecting money constantly from her ex for the upkeep of the house especially since he was out of job.

He felt really hurt and accused the wife of infidelity. Hence the question :Was it right for the woman to ask for help from the ex?

Tope Mark-Odigie addressing the topic, said in her home she does full disclosure with her husband – meaning she tells her husband anything even though they still quarrel.However speaking from experience, ‘many men’ can’t handle full disclosure.

Speaking on getting financial help from an Ex, Tope-Mark Odigie sees noting wrong in getting help from someone who you once had a relationship with as long as you’re not rewarding them with sex for financial help.

Excerpt of her response:

“I will totally collect money from my ex, there is no ex that didn’t ‘chop’ my money. Even when I dated somebody that was financially comfortable, I always feel I must do something for you too – so I have added value to everybody that has come in contact with me, and If they feel in the long term when I need help they want to support me, I don’t see anything wrong! As long as they’re not compelling me to reward them immediately – like have sex with them for that financial help, I don’t see anything wrong in asking for financial help from someone I had a relationship with before….”

“In an argument with hubby:
IS IT ACTUALLY POSSIBLE TO BRING UP A VERY DISCIPLINED CHILD WITHOUT #FLOGGING ?
Let’s get your experience as a child, a parent or both please. 😭😭😭”

It is safe to say who is on what end of the flogging spectrum as Ufuoma Mcdermott is married to Steven McDermott, a British nationale and Nigerian parents as a rule are not known to ‘spare the rod and spoil the child’.

Opinions on the matter were divided as some were for flogging and others against it as seen in the comment section of that post.
