Voan has been granted authorization by the appropriate Government organ as a non-profit and non-governmental Organization in fulfillment of members desire to come together as one body for the purpose of promoting their common interests.
Every Vehicle owner in Nigeria is eligible and is already a bona-fide member of VOAN, while the registration is free.
This is the process of providing the Vehicle Owners with the information and resources necessary for analyzing issues that affect their lives and environment.
Information plays a vital role in wealth generation, safety and compliance with rule of law. Information is the critical economic resource in today’s world. We believe that Vehicle Owners must be economically empowered through access to business, social and economic information.
The social media has become one of the fastest and most accessible tool of communication. The social media has been used both positively and negatively. The purpose of our online engagement with VOAN members through www.vehicleownersafrica.org is to disseminate useful information online, real-time to VOAN members for their benefits and to also interact with VOAN secretariat in Abuja and other states’ offices for registration
This is also another platform where information goes out to the public very fast. Having invited guests, VOAN members and the leadership on the platform to discuss insightful ways to address issues and share ideas will be of great benefit to the Vehicle Owners and the nation.
