Edo govt, auto dealers partner on expo
Edo State government is collaborating with local and international automobile dealers to host Africa’s biggest car auction and expo in Benin City, the Edo State capital.
The Edo Car Auction 2022 (ECA 22) will serve as a platform to link buyers and sellers of automobiles across the globe, ensuring access to affordable and quality automobiles.
The car show and auction, according to the organizers, is scheduled to take place in April 2022, at the premises of Itohan Girls Grammar School in Benin City.
The Chief of Staff to the Edo State Governor, Hon. Osaigbovo Iyoha, who spoke to journalists after a meeting with the automobile dealers, at the Government House Benin City, said that the government was committed to improving the livelihoods of citizens while ensuring an enabling environment where businesses could thrive.
His words: “Edo State, today, is the hub of car business in the whole of South-south and South-east regions and this show presents a new vista of opportunities for car buyers and sellers in the regions.
“We are glad to be uniting the biggest automobile dealers across the world and our local car dealers in Benin City with car buyers and promoters to enhance access to quality and cheap cars through our forthcoming Edo Car Auction, which is well-positioned to become the biggest car auction and expo in Africa.
“We understand people’s growing passion to own a car amid the limitations caused by the increasing cost of acquiring an automobile in the country. This show will bridge that gap, ensuring a win-win situation for both buyers and sellers.”
