In a groundbreaking move to address security challenges and stimulate economic growth, Elites Group of Companies, a Nigerian firm, has recently unveiled plans to establish a domestic assembly and production line for unmanned vehicles, drones, and other critical security equipment.
This strategic initiative comes on the heels of a significant agreement with foreign Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) partners.
According to a report by Nigerian newspaper The Punch, the Group Managing Director of Elites Logistics & Development Services Ltd, Otunba David Adesanya, revealed the company’s ambitious undertaking, emphasizing its pivotal role in enhancing security infrastructure in Nigeria, contributing to the modern manufacturing industry, and generating numerous socio-economic benefits for the nation and the African continent.
