Chief Dr. Innocent Ifediaso Chukwuma OFR, the Chairman of Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing Company Limited, gave out a brand new INNOSON IVM G5to a m,an , Ikechukwu Osakwe popularly called Osabros who prophesied to him in 1979 that he would be the first person in Africa to manufacture vehicles and sell to different African Countries .
To make it interesting and believable, as at the time of the prophesy, Mr Innocent could not even boast of a car not to talk of becoming a manufacturer.
Making the presentation of the car, Innocent recalled how Ikechukwu Osakwe all the way from Kano ‘blocked’ him in front of his residence early in the morning and gave him the message he had for him.
Mr Oakwe went on to narrate a dream he had about him, how he aw in his dream Innocent Vehicle Manufacturing Company known as CAP PLC.
‘’’He told me that CAP means Chukwuma Automobile Productions. Immediately he said that , I laughed him to scorn and left him immediately’’.
When he latr established the first motorcycle assembly plant , he came back again to remind me of that dream again and told me that I will still manufacture vehicles. Of a truth it was after I established my vehicle manufacturing plant that I realized his prophesy was genuine.
‘’This week I signed an MOU with TAXI PLUS all the way from MALI and so I recalled that Mr. Ikechukwu Osakwe prophesied as far back as 1979 that I will be the first indigenous vehicle manufacturing company to sell cars to other African countries.
I shed tears of joy and said this can only be the hand of God. That is why I have invited him to let him know that his prophesy has been fulfilled.
‘’ I have decided to give him a Brand new IVM G5 SUV and pay him a monthly salary for life. I want to encourage him to keep serving God’’.
The presentation of the vehicle was witnessed by members of Osakwe’s family , friends and relatives. The presentation was done by Chief Gabriel Chukwuma , (Gabros), the immediate elder brother to Dr. Innocent Chukwuma who also wa a witness in 1979 at the time the prophesy was given.
Making his vote of thanks, Mr Osakwe expressed his gratitude to Dr. Chukwuma and also told him that more greater things will still happen to him and IVM.
He prayed for Dr Chukwuma and told him that the grace of God that has brought him this far will continue to see him through till IVM becomes a dorminant force in Africa.
