A firstclass Nigerian traditional ruler, Oluwo of Iwoland, HIM Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi has procured a G-Wagon G80 made in Nigeria vehicle to mark his 2nd enthronement Anniversary.
With this unusual development, Oluwo becomes the first king, not only in Yorubaland but also in Nigeria to use the new model of the made in Nigeria car manufactured by Innoson Vehicles.
It could be recalled that Oluwo was the only monarch invited at the commissioning of the new model of the home made vehicle last year.
The first G80 model in the world was purchased by the Oluwo of Iwoland.
Oluwo then called on Nigerians to patronise made in Nigeria vehicles and specially asked that Innoson motors should be purchased.
His words, “every Nigerian that can afford a vehicle should get his vehicle from Innoson vehicle manufacturing as a sign of patriotism cos Innoson is not just Nigeria’s pride but the Black Man’s.
“It will be a shame for any Nigerian to be paying exorbitant prices and customs duty for foreign cars made by the so called western world and you neglect your own blood’s innovation where you won’t need to pay customs duty and also promoting yourself as a Blackman who has invented something since Adam’s.”
