In a recent exchange of statements, Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing (IVM) has refuted allegations from the Abia State House of Assembly that the company reneged on an agreement to supply official vehicles after being paid. This controversy was highlighted during a press conference held by Rt Hon Emmanuel Ihuoma Emeruwa, the Speaker of the Abia State House of Assembly at the Assembly complex yesterday, commemorating the 8th Assembly's one-year anniversary in office.

Addressing the press, the Speaker reiterated the Assembly members' ongoing frustrations over the lack of functional transportation, previously reported in the media.

In response, IVM issued a press release titled "Innoson Vehicles Responds to Allegations by Abia State House of Assembly," denying the Speaker's claims. The statement, signed by Cornel Osigwe, Head of Corporate Communications at IVM, clarified that the Abia State Government has not initiated any payment for the purchase of official vehicles for the Assembly members.

"Innoson Vehicles Manufacturing, a leading automobile manufacturer, would like to address the recent allegations made by the Abia State House of Assembly regarding the fulfillment of our agreement to produce vehicles for all the lawmakers," the statement began.

IVM explained that the vehicles ordered by the Governor for the Assembly members required the production of a new frame not previously manufactured at their factory. Emphasizing their commitment to promoting local products, IVM took the project seriously, producing a sample for the Governor's approval. After implementing suggested modifications, the new model vehicles are now undergoing rigorous testing and are expected to be ready by the end of this month, with delivery completed by the beginning of next month.

"First and foremost, we would like to clarify that the vehicles ordered by the Governor for the Members of the Abia State House of Assembly were a special vehicle that required the production of a new frame, which was not previously produced at our factory," the statement continued. "In accordance with the Governor's initiative to promote local products, we took this project very seriously and produced a sample for approval by the Governor. During this process, the Governor suggested some remodifications, which we promptly implemented to meet his specified requirements."

IVM emphasized that they have not received any payment for the vehicles. "When His Excellency requested payment, we made a conscious decision not to accept any payment until the vehicles are finally produced and delivered. Therefore, the House of Assembly's claim that payment has been made is inaccurate."

IVM expressed gratitude to the Abia State Government for their continued support and patronage, reassuring them of their commitment to delivering high-quality vehicles and preventing future delays.

"We want to reassure them that we have taken significant measures to prevent future delays and uphold our commitment to delivering high-quality vehicles," the statement concluded. "Innoson Vehicles Manufacturing Ltd remains dedicated to providing excellent products and services to our esteemed customers. We appreciate your understanding and patience in this matter."

This dispute underscores the importance of clear communication and transparency between the state government and its contractors. As the situation develops, both parties need to resolve the issue promptly to ensure that Assembly members can perform their duties effectively and without further hindrance.
