Founder and Chairman of Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing Company, leader of made in Nigeria car makers of Innoson motors brand, Chief Innocent Chukwuma, has described Abia State Governor, Dr. Alex Otti, OFR, as his company’s foremost customer.

Chief Chukwuma, who paid a business visit to Governor Otti at his Nvosi, Isialangwa South Local Government country-home, last Friday, August 11, 2023, thanked the Governor for being a great promoter of the Innoson brand.

“He’s the number one marketer of Innoson,” Chief Chukwuma said of Dr. Otti.

“Most of the vehicles bought by government in this state (Abia) are Innoson vehicles and they are happy with the vehicles.”

He applauded Governor Otti for his continued support and patronage, adding that his company is in talk with officials of the Abia State Government to set up a maintenance centre for the servicing and repairs of the vehicles in Abia.

The foremost Nigerian indigenous auto maker also said that he plans to make Abia the hub for conversion of petrol and diesel engine vehicles to compressed natural gas (CNG) user engine.

Chief Chukwuma disclosed that Governor Otti had placed order for 20 security pick-up vans from his company, which the government needed urgently but he was not able to supply them at that time because they had exhausted their stock, hence the government was compelled to procure the vehicles from another source.

Governor Otti, while receiving Chief Chukwuma and his team, pledged to continue to support Innoson Motors.

He said that his government had already purchased no fewer than 40 Innoson brand of vehicles, adding that arrangement was ongoing to procure more vehicles, including those of the 24 members of the Abia State House of Assembly.

The Governor reminded the Innoson Chairman that his own (Governor’s) official vehicle was still awaited, to which the car maker promised to deliver this week.


Otti added that, every effort he is making to secure the State and put road infrastructure is aimed at developing the State and creating wealth for the people of the State.

He assured Chief Chukwuma of continuous partnership with the government of Abia.

In another development, the Abia State Government has placed immediate ban on commercial motorcycle riders. This development was stated in a press statement by Kazie Uko, Chief Press Secretary to the Governor.

The statement reads: “The Governor of Abia State, Dr. Alex Otti, OFR, has directed the immediate ban on the operation of commercial motorcyclists, otherwise known as Okada, within Umuahia, the State capital, and Aba Metropolis.

“Effective Monday, August 14, 2023, any motorcycle seen on the streets of Umuahia and Aba townships being used for such purpose will be impounded by the security agencies.

“Also, security agencies have been directed to arrest any individual caught violating this order, for possible prosecution.”

The directive is to take immediate effect.
