Diana Chen, the controversial Chinese woman who is the Chairman of CIG Motors, has successfully penetrated the Gombe State government with GAC Vehicles. CIG Motors is the exclusive distributor of GAC vehicles made in China.

This was recently made manifest with the official presentation of GAC cars to 17 commissioners in the state.

Making the presentation of new GAC GS4 vehicles, on Friday, the Gombe State Governor, Muhammadu Yahaya, urged the Commissioners to utilise the vehicles for purposes they were provided for.

The governor said “This is not a donation because it’s not for free. I want to seize this opportunity to allocate and issue these vehicles to our commissioners in order for them to use them; because of the prestige of the office, they need to go with the full complement of the office.

“It’s a tradition we have already done that to House of Assembly members so that they can participate in governance and carry out their oversight functions without any hitch.”

“Everyone knows that the trend around the whole world is inflation and depreciation of the value of the naira and so many things around the economy.

“There is a need to be prudent in whatever we do. Reduce cost of governance but yet perform as administrators, that is why Commissioners and entire Ministries, Departments and Agencies have vehicles to operate efficiently and effectively and it’s for those reasons that these vehicles are now allocated to ministries for commissioners to use.

“This time around, we must put extra care as it’s a public asset by making sure we handle them as we handle our own property. We have to show leadership by example; it’s when you lead that others follow, and you must lead from the front. I urge you to manage these vehicles properly by utilising them for the good of the people. If we see the vehicles engaged in anything extra we will retrieve them and take them back to the ministry because we have them on record. I want to urge you to utilise the vehicles well.”
