Aftermath of the honour given to me last week at the Nigerian Defence Academy, The Chief of Defence Staff sent a special team to come on the ground facility tour of our Vehicle Manufacturing Plant to see our facilities and our capability to partner with them. The team which was led by Commodore Musa Gemu was surprised and highly impressed on what he saw on ground. He told me he never knew we have the machines to manufacture any type of vehicle and promised to relay what he saw to the Defence Chief. We at Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing is ever ready to partner with the Military in any form.


I also received the Research, Innovation and University Industry Relations of Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka led by Prof Frank Ogbo and their members of the executives. We discussed intensively on how we can collaborate together and further make use of their research findings in producing innovative products.

Also on a visit to our Manufacturing plant yesterday are members of the Federal House of Reps Committee on Industry led by its Chairman Hon Abubakar H Moroni. They came to see our facility and know how the Government can support our work. I specifically told them that one major problem limiting our production capacity is the issue of limited and non availability of foreign exchange to source raw materials needed for production. The Chairman who also agreed that the problem which is not peculiar to us will be sorted out within a short period of time. They were also impressed with what they saw on ground.

Just today, The Honourable Members made a visit to our Plastic Manufacturing Company at Emene Enugu where I took them round the different lines of our production units. They were really amazed at what they saw and now promised what they can do for us to be having continuous foreign exchange.

I want to encourage every Nigerian not to give up on our Country and lets all join hands to move Nigeria forward.
