Nigerians React As FG Spends Hundreds Of Millions On Innoson Vehicles

Nigerians have taken to social media to react to the purchases made from the indigenous vehicle manufacturing company, Innoson by the Federal Government of Nigeria.

Naija News reports the Federal Government on Wednesday approved a contract with an indigenous motor company, Innoson, to supply 21 vehicles to the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC).

Information Minister, Lai Mohammed, made this known to newsmen at the end of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting chaired by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, at Aso Rock Villa.

He confirmed that the “contract was in favour of Messrs Innoson Manufacturing Company at the sum of N660,422,220 and it’s made up of 20 pick-up vehicles and 1 City Bus”.

According to him, “it is in the spirit of encouraging our local industries that the contract was awarded to Innosons Motors”.

Reacting to the development, netizens lamented the number of vehicles purchased by the federal government, while others, however, commended FG for being very supportive, of Nigerian-made products.
