Founder of Innoson Manufacturing Company, Innocemt Chuwkuma has denied planning to join music star, Tuface Idibia for a protest against the current government.
Tubaba, as 2face is fondly called had announced that he would be leading a mass protest against what he tagged the obnoxious policies of this government.
Reports had on Friday quoted the media aide to Chukwuma as saying that the company had stopped 80% of production due to high cost of materials.
The report also indicated that the company will join the protest.
Reacting to the social media report, Chukwuma denied ever planning to team up with the singer for the protest.
His statement reads in full:
“My attention has been drawn to a Headline statement going viral on some section of social media platform stating that “Innoson Stops Production Due To PMB’s Policies, May Join 2Baba Protest.
The Headline statement which was developed as a result of a facebook post credited to my media aide this morning, and which is pointing that we have shut down production due to President Buhari’s unfavourable policies is absolute false.
I will therefore through this medium state the following facts:
The statement put out today was neither from my media aide nor from Innoson Group and the content therein are absolute false. I have confirmed that his Facebook account was hacked and he is still fighting to regain the access to his account.
Innoson Technical and Industrial Co Ltd, Emene Enugu was never shut down and at no time was there a partial production. We have been producing at full capacity.
I have always maintained at different times and in various interviews that I have absolute faith in Mr President determination to solve our various and diverse economic challenges.
I therefore urge Nigerians to give Mr President and his economic team all the necessary support, as they are working hard to solve our various economic challenges. Lets all join hands to move Nigeria forward.”
