Head, Corporate Communications at Peugeot Automobile Nigeria Limited (PAN)

Peugeot Automobile Nigeria Limited (PAN), which has remained a milestone in Nigeria's automobile industry, was conceived in 1969 by the then Federal Military Government under the leadership of General Yakubu Gowon. And in the build-up to actualize the dream, 16 reputable vehicle manufacturing companies were invited to tender their proposals for the establishment of a vehicle assembly plant in the country. Thus, with the high acceptability and demand of Peugeot vehicles in the country, the proposal of Automobile Peugeot France (AP France) scaled through on May 7, 1971.
