Welcome to The Autoist.
The Autoist is a Nigerian automotive and travel blog.
I catalog personal vehicles that I bought, repaired and/or converted in Nigeria. There is no importation of vehicles except for some parts and accessories. The aim is to encourage refurbishments and rebuilds in order to encourage and stimulate a cottage industry.
Additionally, I will showcase my trips and travels around Nigeria specifically, and Africa in general. One of my first international driving trips will be to The Gambia and will be billed as a “West Africa Expedition – 2022”. Subsequent trips to East, South and North Africa (perhaps with a crossing to Europe) will follow.
Private and commercial sponsorship opportunities will be available in the future and additional details will be provided.
Nigeria used to have a huge automotive culture in the 60’s and 70’s, there are lots of tourist attractions in Nigeria. I intend to marry these two hobbies of mine together and promote them.
Please follow my trials and tribulations here and on social media @TheAutoist_NG.
