Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing has denied being under any pressure to relocate its headquarters from the South Eastern part of the country to either Lagos or Kaduna.
In a statement issued on Wednesday by Cornel Osigwe, Innoson’s Head of Corporate Communications, the indigenous vehicle manufacturing company said it had never been under pressure to relocate.
He said: “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 beneficially of this initiative is Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing”, the statement noted.
