Following a recent publication by Toyota Nigeria Limited (TNL) which claims that TNL has severed all distribution links with Globe Motors. The company (Globe Motors Holdings Ltd) has issued a public statement affirming that it is an authorized and accredited distributor of Toyota cars in Nigeria on its own.
Globe Motors says it never had any “Toyota vehicles” distribution relationship with Toyota Nigeria Limited
Naijauto gathered that Globe Motors is literally claiming that it never even had such “distribution” relationship with Toyota Nigeria Limited in the first place to warrant such breakup claims.
Mr. Victor Oguamalam, the Managing Director of Globe Motors Holding Nigeria Limited, in a new statement claims that the company has been only directly linked to Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) from which it gets Toyota vehicles supplies.

He went further to explain how this direct relationship with TMC has helped the company to deliver Toyota Vehicles which are tropicalized and come with full warranty. In his statement, he said;
“Our attention has been drawn to a false publication by a moribund acronym regarding Toyota vehicles distributorship in Nigeria,”
“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.”
“Globe Motors Ltd is the leading distributor of Toyota vehicles in the last 25 years with a current inventory position and investment in Automobile Assembly Plant on a 100,000sqm of prime real estate in the Lekki corridor with a valuation in excess of $150 million.
“Our warrantees are more valid than those of any other subset or moribund acronym in the country. We import tropicalised vehicles, built for Nigerian roads and climate.
"Our customers enjoy the 3-year warranty, as stipulated by the manufacturer of Toyota vehicles. We have better backup services.”
