Nigeria has rolled out their very first motorcycle. Developed by National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI Open NASENI link in a new window), the 80cc scooter uses 85% of locally sourced components and resources.

Apparently, you can't see it on the only photo available, is that this scooter is a trike. IMHO, it looks like a Honda CubHonda Cub.

Now, the Vice Chairman of NASINE, Dr. Muhammad Sani Haruna, is calling upon the Nigerian government to ban the importation of all motorcycles and scooters so that the national scooter manufacturing industry can be "protected". In a statement he said "About 20 million Nigerians today rely on motorcycles as a means of transport and many unemployed youths and men support their families or earn a living from running motorcycle as a commercial venture. Imagine the large number of jobs that will be created if only Nigeria could close her borders against the importation of motorcycles and allow entrepreneurs to invest in the manufacturing of the parts including production of the motorcycle locally".

Wow... so they copy some old scooter design, make one of them as example, and then they want to stop all other motorcycle manufacturers from selling their real bikes in the country. Gutsy.

I can't help myself from wondering how long before you get an email from Dr. Haruna, saying that to get the motorcycle for free, you need to help him liberate some funds from the hidden state treasury, and all you need is to advance him 6 million dollars, and then it's all yours. And BTW, Dr. Haruna is really the son of the Emperor of Nigeria.
