20 May 2022, Nnewi (MOI) Gov. Chukwuma Soludo today inspected the newly constructed and ready-to-use tricycles at Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing Company (IVM), Nnewi, in line with the Anambra State Government's strategy of supporting locally created items to enhance the state's economy.
The 'Keke' tricycles, which were designed and manufactured by Innoson Group, are about to reach the road.
During the inspection, Gov. Soludo, who was represented by Deputy Governor Dr. Onyekachukwu Ibezim, stated that indigenous manufacturing enterprises needed to be promoted since that was the only way the economy could flourish, lowering unemployment among the youths, who were the most targeted.
``Initially, we import all these from China but from what I am seeing here, the tricycles are strong, durable and bigger too.
``Government has started plans to introduce door to door picking of wastes as it is a sustainability plan that is being put in place to achieve a cleaner city.
``We are also looking for indigenous producers of waste bins like Innoson so that we can put structures that would be picked at your doorsteps for onward disposal to appropriate places and recycling,’’ he added.
The Spokesperson of the IVM, Mr. Cornelius Igwe said that Innoson as a manufacturing company always partners and supports the state government's policies and agenda, noting that the production of these tricycles was one of the things the company has done to support the administration.
Mr. Igwe emphasized that the tricycles would be sold at cheaper rates so that the masses could afford to buy them. (MOI)
