The Enugu State government has openly expressed delight over the commitment of Ingrace Group, an indigenous automobile company in promoting indigenously manufactured vehicles in Nigeria.
Speaking when a delegation from Ingrace Motors Nigeria Limited who had been led by its Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Chief Chinedu Onu, displayed the company’s brands and donated one of the vehicles to the Enugu State government recently, to assess the durability, flexibility and strength, the Secretary to the State Government, Prof. Simon Uchenna Ortuanya had openly congratulated the automobile company for demonstrating the “We can do it in Nigeria” spirit.
In a statement, Ortuanya had also disclosed that the company’s vision was in tandem with the cardinal policies of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi’s administration in investment promotion and protection of life and property.
Appreciating Ingrace Motors for the car donation, Ortuanya had informed the company that the state government would come up with policies to foster its growth and actualise its vision in the interest of the people of Enugu State, Nigeria and humanity.
Earlier, Onu, had mentioned to the governor that the company had obtained the federal government’s approval to assemble vehicles in the country, adding that they have also entered into business partnership with Chinese companies.
He disclosed that the automobile company had acquired over 600 plots of land, completely cleared, at Ezimo, Udenu Local Government Area, for the assembly plant and has equally paid for all the assembly equipment.
The CEO who acknowledged the governor’s individual support to the company over the years, said: “We have come to the Enugu State Government House to seek the state government’s support and blessings.
“Today, we have about 11 brands of vehicles, but we came with four of them today.
“In our last meeting, the management approved that we should donate one of the vehicles to the Enugu State Government for use, for them to see the durability, flexibility and strength of this vehicle.
“We believe that on our own we cannot do it alone. But working with public spirited individuals and the state government we can be able to achieve our target.”
