Innoson Vehicles and Motors has refuted speculations making the rounds that the company is set to relocating to Lagos State from Nnewi, Anambra State.
There have been reports (not on this platform) that the Federal Government has told the firm to move to Lagos from its Nnewi manufacturing base.
However, Concise News understands that in a statement, Tuesday, Innoson Motors and Vehicles, said there is no truth in the claims.
According to Innoson, “There has never been any order and there will never be any order either from the Federal Government or its agencies to Innoson Vehicles to relocate his Vehicle Manufacturing Plant which is based in Nnewi to Lagos, Kaduna or any other place.
“Innoson Vehicles has continually maintained a robust relationship with the Federal Government specifically under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR.
“For example, under this present administration, Nnewi Auto-Industrial Park was initiated to support automobile parts manufacturing companies to come together and deliver support services, vehicle components, and raw materials required by the teeming automobile manufacturing companies in Nigeria.
“A major beneficiary of this initiative is Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing.”
It noted that “the Chairman of Innoson Group stated clearly that Innoson Vehicles “has enjoyed huge patronage and support from the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.
“Furthermore, Innoson Vehicles has continually enjoyed patronage from the Federal Government and its agencies; specifically, The Nigerian Military, The Police Force, Federal Road Safety Commission, Fire Service, Immigration and lots more.
“Innoson Vehicles is in partnership with the Nigerian Air Force for the development and promotion of joint activities to sustain the maintenance of the Nigerian Air Force Air Assets and other associated Aerospace Ground Equipment (AGE) to enable the Nigerian Air Force to continuously carry out its constitutional obligations to the Nation.”
It, therefore, urged “the general public to disregard the fallacious publication in its entirety as there is no element of truth therein.”
