Minister of Trade and Investment, Dr. Olusegun Aganga has commended Innoson Vehicles Manufacturing Company located in Nnewi, Anambra state, for producing the first Nigeria-made brand of vehicles, emphasizing that such move will help to expand the country’s manufacturing and production sectors. Aganga, who spoke at the weekend in Nnewi during the unveiling of the company’s new cars, namely IVM Fox, IVM UMU and IVM UZO, noted that by producing a truly made-in-Nigeria car, the company has put Nnewi, Anambra State and Nigeria in the global map of car manufacturing countries. Also speaking at the event, Mr. Peter Obi, the former governor of Anambra State, said that right from when he was governor and thereafter, INNOSON vehicles had remained part of his official and private cars. He called on Nigerians and the governments at all levels to embrace INNOSON vehicles as well as other made-in-Nigeria products. Mr. Rasheed Adejare, CEO, Bank of Industry, said the bank was proud of INNOSON company, adding that the proprietor of Innoson vehicles, Dr. Innocent Chukwuma, has been admitted into the bank’s ‘Hall of Fame’ for his commitment in repaying loans advanced to him by the bank. Dr. Chukwuma said the company will forever remain grateful to Mr. Obi, for patronising the company’s products during and after his tenure as governor of Anambra State. He called on other Nigerians to emulate the former governor by being proud users of made-in-Nigeria products. He also thanked President Goodluck Jonathan for commissioning the company, saying that the support from the federal government during the construction stage of the car manufacturing plant is commendable and impressive.
