Globe Motors Holdings (Nigeria) Limited has said it is an accredited and authorised distributor of Toyota vehicles in Nigeria.
This statement came in reaction to a publication by Toyota Nigeria Limited (TNL). In the publication by TNL. it stated that it had severed distribution links with Globe Motors.
According to Globe Motors, it never had that type of relationship with TNL in the first instance to warrant a breakup.
In a statement, the Managing Director of GMHNL, Mr. Victor Oguamalam said,“Our attention has been drawn to a false publication by a moribund acronym regarding Toyota vehicles distributorship in Nigeria,”. Furthermore, Oguamalam stated that the company had direct links to a source known to Toyota Motor Corporation of Japan from where it imports vehicles.
According to him, Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) is the number one manufacturing company in the world. And it has five layers of distributorship for their products – Toyota vehicles and spare parts. And it covers all the continents of the world.
He also said all these distributors ensure that TMC’s standards are met and factory warranty of 3 years is ensured. “Globe Motors is successfully linked to this value chain.”
“Globe Motors Company is the foremost, leading and biggest importer of Toyota vehicles in the country. Our warrantees are more valid than those of any other subset or moribund acronym in the country.”
