Nigeria: From Dumping Ground To Vehicle Manufacturing Hub

3
Before 2013, Nigeria was Africa’s biggest market for tokunbos—the local name used to describe used cars shipping from Europe and the US. Vehicles (mostly five to 10 years old) were brought into the country through the Lagos seaport, or smuggled through the border it shares with Benin Republic. What fuelled this massive dumping, however, was that the local manufacturing (or assembling) industry was virtually grounded, and investing in a new car was pretty expensive for the average Nigerian.
