The Chairman, Managing Director of Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing Company, Dr. Innocent Chukwuma yesterday, June 5th, disclosed that his target is to export his automobile brands to other countries to attract foreign exchange into the economy.
Dr. Chukwuma who is the first indigenous automobile manufacturer in Nigeria, said Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing started production in 2009 and has so far manufactured over 11,000 vehicles.
He said that with access to more capital, he will be able to expand his scale of production and ultimately meet expected export quotas within Africa and beyond.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed who was on a visit to Innoson manufacturing facilities at Nnewi urged Nigerians to patronize made in Nigeria goods. He praised Dr. Chukwuma for his inattentiveness and urged Nigerian to emulate him to better our society.
