Nigerians have taken to social media to blast members of House of Representatives over their alleged refusal to endorse made-in-Nigeria vehicles as their official vehicles.
In a report titled Reps reject Innoson made- in-Nigeria SUVs as official vehicles, Dailytimes reported that the lawmaker who made the suggestion to endorse the locally made vehicles was shouted down during the executive session on Wednesday.
According to the report, the lawmakers insisted on brand new imported SUVs against the locally assembled and made- in – Nigeria brands.

Don't eat foreign rice, eat local rice, promote Nigeria.
Then when it comes to choosing official cars, Innoson motors isn't good enough, what happened to patronize Nigeria and promote Nigerian products?
