Leading lubricants companies in the country have resolved to take the fight against fake, adulterated lubricants and transmission fluids to the doorsteps of real automobile consumers.
The ultimate goal is to ensure that Nigerians use the right oils for their vehicles and other engines so as to reduce the menace of fake and adulterated lubes in the country and ensure that automobile consumers enjoy their vehicles for a long time.
They have therefore decided to showcase their products at the forthcoming 8th Lagos Motor Fair and second Auto Parts Expo Nigeria scheduled to hold at the Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos from May 10 to 16. Products to be showcased at the fair include additives, lubricants, greases, adhesives, wiper blades etc.
Already confirmed for participation at the show which is being organised by BKG Exhibitions Limited and SENEXPO International Fairs of Turkey are lubricants giants such as Mobil, Oando, Performance Enhancing Products Limited (PEPCO), Ascon Oil Limited, Coin Ventures Limited and Lubcon Limited, among others.
A source from one of the companies told CODEWIT at the weekend that “a strategic platform as the 8th Lagos Motor fair offers is very ample for us to demonstrate to Nigerians the world of differences between the genuine and fake products and thus educate them that they need to patronise the right products to enhance the efficiency and durability of their vehicles,” adding “My company, being a proactive one, will be there because it is a forum to meet our target market in their large numbers.”
Excited at the development, the organising committee of the event has commended the interest of the lubricants giants, noting that providing a platform for all segments of the automotive sector to showcase their best and latest and thereby fast tracking the development of the sector in Nigeria remains the main objective of the fair which is having its eight edition this year.
