Innoson Group Nigeria – Ready with the 1st made-in-Africa automobiles

by Uche Onegeria 14 Feb , 2016  

  Innoson Group is the brainchild of Chief, (Dr.) Innocent Ifediaso Chukwuma who was born in 1961 in Nnewi, Anambra State – Nigeria.

It is alleged that his company “is third after Leventis and Boulos Enterprises in assembling branded motorcycles in the country”.

For people that are not close to him like me, we all know Chief Chukwuma by his popular brand – Innoson which has 4 other subsidiaries:

  • Innoson Nigeria Ltd., Nnewi – Manufacturers of motorcycle accessories
  • Innoson Tech. & Industries Co. Ltd, Enugu – Manufacturers of household appliances, plastics and storage containers, health & safety accessories, storage containers, fixtures & fittings, electrical components & accessories.
  • Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing (IVM) Nnewi – Manufacturers of vehicles of all kinds.
  • General Tyres & Tubes Co. Ltd Enugu – Manufacturers of high-quality tyres & tubes.

Here is something intriguing about this man, Chukwuma (Innoson). He is obviously a visionary. History has proven to us over and over again that schooling (I did not say “education”) is not the only tool that will unlock the potentials of our youths. I mean, in the ancient times, the ancient Egyptians built the pyramids and many other innovative structures that still hold man in awe till…forever. These amazing structures continue being studied by so-called Scholars (who obviously hold more degrees than our ancestors) to unlock the truth behind the structures.
Innoson is the Steve Jobs of Africa because his remarkable leadership skills enable him to see way beyond what everyone around him sees. When Africans have settled for buying either brand new or fairly-used Japanese, German or American cars, which cost a fortune not just to have but in import tariffs as well, Innoson has come up with a solution. Imagine if every person allowed themselves to see the way he does, the world would be a lot better.
Is mankind becoming a walking zombie (not able to think for himself), with all the vital and innate tools nature equipped us to survive, gradually been eroded by the mindset that school is the place to gain knowledge? I am not against schooling. What I think is wrong is telling our kids that all the knowledge they need can only be obtained from the schools. No! It is not!

We are ALL born with great gifts. Children should be empowered to think from when they are still in their diapers, then of course school can then develop or refine their gifts for them. You cannot develop what was never there. And for the people that school has never helped, maybe they never tried to think for themselves. Maybe they relied on schools solely for their developments.

Do not get me wrong, some schools are equipped with great Guidance and Counselors and also tutors who work with students to unlock their capabilities. I once had a boss who treated you as if he could see how amazing you ought to be and then would work with you to the point where you can see that picture for yourself. Visionary is what I call the likes of him!

For Innoson’s latest vehicle inventions, as long as his vehicles go through the required safety inspections, trial stages, routine inspections, and pass, then I think that his cars should be in the market and ready for consumers. And like he has said, “would you not rather drive a brand new car, albeit made in Nigeria than a fairly-used?” (Nigerians refer to fairly-used cars as “Tokumbo cars”)
I think that Nigeria and the rest of Africa are ready for this. After all, Rome was not built in a day.

I'm Uche, a lazy writer whose passion for a developed Nigeria is second to none. I do not see tribe, religion, sexual orientation, social status, gender, age... I only see Humans because I have seen the deadly disadvantages of such labels.

I believe Nigeria has never fully harnessed the collective potentials of all her tribes & will only work when we fix this! Let's not fail ourselves by losing sight of what matters most; our HUMANITY!
