|Oluwo of Iwo|
|Emperor AbdulRosheed Akanbi Telu 1|
Like it has been said severally, “Envy no matter how bad, deep or terrible cannot take away not stop the sweet savour of Honey”, so no matter how one see or perceive Innoson Motors or even the Emperor of Greater Iwo, Oba Akanbi Telu 1, it still does not take nothing away from them.
Innoson Motors like we all know are probably the only indigenous motor manufacturers in Nigeria presently. And in this era of inward reintegration, we cannot just understand how come they haven’t become the preferred company/brand for cars in Nigeria and for Nigerians. Imagine the country just supporting her own brand, what an extraordinary amount of good that would have turned out. Just imagine what the growth of such a brand like Innoson would have done to unemployment etc.
The monarch of Iwo though a very colourful and flamboyant king, though loud and having loads of detractors, it doesn’t still take away from the fact that he has brought good attention one way or the other to his domain and towards our very rich culture and traditions and he seem to be changing the narrative about his homestead–Iwoland gradually and steadily.
Just imagine if all the many very prominent, highly influential and very well to do Nigerians, would show support to such a brand like Innoson Motors very openly like the Iwo monarch has done now for a bit!
The picture above which looks nothing shy of a brand spanking new Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon is actually an Innoson Wagon, this was actually gotten by the wealthy Iwo monarch sometime ago, to show support for Made in Nigeria. Just by mere looking at it from the outside it’s a stunner par excellence and Innoson Motors must be commended for a good job well done.
Just imagine that instead of all the Rolls Royce Phantoms, Ghosts, Wraith, Dawn, Benthleys, Jaguars, Range Rovers, Maybachs etc or even with all of these brands, just imagine all our state Governments, Ministries, Federal Government and more would support our home grown brand? They be seen to ride Innoson Motors, their entourage also driving Innoson Motors, companies, schools etc In Nigeria all supporting Innoson Motors, just imagine! Our own Kia Motors, Ford Motors etc help our own economy to grow!
Away from this our dream of the ideal Nigeria (the utopia) and back to the OLUWO of Iwo and his Innoson Wagon, the gorgeous wagon with his logo or should we say insignia was actually seen at the University of Lagos, maybe the Alase Lori orisa (the authority over the gods) is pursuing a degree course or even his master’s degree programme in the school for all we know.
