In his welcome speech, the governor lauded IVM’s dedication to quality and expressed ongoing support for the local manufacturer.

He emphasized the significance of patronizing homegrown brands and highlighted his enduring partnership with IVM.
“Abia State’s Partnership with Innoson Vehicles remains very solid. Everybody knows that you produced the trucks I used even during my inauguration. The Speaker, Deputy speaker’s vehicles and others are all made by Innoson, supplied within the last two weeks”.
Giving his remarks, the Chairman/CEO of Innoson Vehicles, Chief, Dr Innocent Chukwuma CON, acknowledged the governor’s continued support and mentioned plans for an IVM CNG Conversion hub in Abia State.
“Governor Alex Otti is one of the persons that support Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing massively. He has ordered more vehicles from us recently”.
