Former Special Assistant to the Chairman of the Kogi State Universal Basic Education (SUBEB) and now CEO of Dallas, Texas-based Mr J Autos LLC, Oludoyi Julius Juwon has spoken of his plan to reach out to 500,000 people with special needs in Africa through his Mr Jay Palliative Support initiative.
“There is a lot of help businesses can render to alleviate suffering in Nigeria, and also catalysed development without leaving the people at the mercy of struggling governments,” he said.
The Mr J Autos LLC boss who donated relief materials to the needy during the Covid-19 period avowed that the plan to extend help to 500, 000 people with special needs is currently being finetuned.
Juwon, a graduate of Salem University, Lokoja who previously worked with the Institute of Peace and Conflict Resolution in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, had travelled to America for further studies and has since founded a thriving business, Mr J Autos LLC, with customers in sub-Sahara Africa.
Speaking about how he created the multi-million dollar luxury automobile business empire, Mr J Autos LLC attributed his success to his integrity as the best in the market when it comes to the importation of affordable, clean and non-accidental cars.
“We specialize in sales of both American and German Spec cars. And our market is not restricted to Nigeria but also extends to Cameroon, Ghana and other West African countries,” he explained.
Sharing his view about the state of the Nigerian economy, the Kogi-born entrepreneur avowed that the decline in the purchasing power of the naira has impacted business.
“The import and export business is most affected because as the Nigerian economy shrinks, people will find it difficult to buy goods that are priced in dollars,” Mr J Autos LLC pointed out.
