The Senator Ifeanyi Ubah led Anambra Progressives has shunned Nigeria’s only vehicle manufacturing company, Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing(IVM), and has purchased foreign medical ambulances, for the launching of the two (2) isolation centres built by the group in Awka and Nnewi.
Senator Ifeanyi Ubah who is representing Anambra South Senatorial District hails from Nnewi, the same town and base of Innoson vehicles and the founder, Chief Innocent Chukwuma.
It will be recalled that Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, who won the Anambra South Senatorial election with the campaign slogan of “The Recovery of Igbo Economy” was alleged to have frustrated the plans of Nigeria Senate on the purchase of Innoson Vehicles.
This was brought to the front burner when the Senator representing Enugu North Senatorial District, Senator Chukwuka Utazi condemned some Nigerians, especially those from the South-East origin, who have the penchant attitude of criticizing and blackmailing Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing (IVM) brand and the founder, Chief Innocent Chukwuma, because of local politics.
While making his presentation, Senator Ubah who represents Anambra South who was visibly angry was heard at the background attacking the comments of Senator Utazi.
According to sources in the Nigerian Senate, the 2021 Anambra State Governorship Hopeful, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah kicked against the purchase of Innoson vehicles claiming that since he is the Senator representing the Senatorial District of Chief Innocent Chukwuma (Innoson), he should be lobbied by Chief Chukwuma to promote the vehicle brand.
Senator Ifeanyi Ubah’s recent action puts to questions his sincerity on his so-called recovery of Igbo Economy, which has been his campaign mantra.
It has been observed that the Senator is being economical with the truth on his claim of being the biggest individual patronizer of Innoson Vehicles. Checks by Anaedoonline.ng reveals that he is nowhere near that figure.
Further investigations from Anaedoonline.ng revealed that Innoson Vehicles has sold over 100 medical ambulances to its patronizers which includes; Hope Uzodinma led Imo State Government, Enugu State Government, University of Abuja, Emeka Okwuosa OilServe, just to mention a few.
