Innoson Vehicles commemorated the eighth anniversary of the Ooni of Ife, Adeyeye Ogunwusi, this week by donating two new vehicles and three motorcycles.
The chairman, Dr. Innocent Chukwuma, represented the indigenous automaker at the occasion.
The gifts for the Ooni included an IVM Smart car, an Innoson Shuttle van, and several branded motorcycles.
One new vehicle will be awarded to an outstanding staff member at the upcoming Staff Appreciation Night.
The Head of Corporate Communications for Innoson Vehicles, Cornel Osigwe, noted on Thursday that “as a prominent sponsor of the Staff Appreciation Day/Award Night, Innoson Vehicles has graciously contributed to enable the Ooni of Ife to reward the most outstanding personnel with a brand-new Innoson Car, while other deserving staff members will be presented with branded Innoson motorcycles as a token of appreciation.”
The Ooni urged government officials to prioritise buying a minimum of 70% of state vehicles from domestic automakers like Innoson.
His wife, Olori Ogunwusi, thanked Innoson’s Chairman Chukwuma for his immense contributions to Nigeria’s growth over the years. She pledged that their foundation would continue promoting Innoson vehicles nationwide through patronage.
