The same way Anambra state is blessed to have Innoson Motors and its Nnewi factory, the new vehicle assembly plants that have now begun operation in Ondo state can bring about an industrial revolution in the state.

According to reports, an investor company called Dongfeng Trucks has begun assembling trucks at the recently launched Ondo-Linyi industrial hub in Ore, Ondo State. Chief Alex Ajipe, the manager of the hub disclosed in a recent public statement at Akure that Dongfeng Trucks is actually one of the leading truck manufacturers in China. Chief Ajipe notably mentioned that Ondo state could be seeing a real historical breakthrough when this truck assembly plant finally begins full operation after the COVID-19 pandemic is curbed.

And, Chief Alex Ajipe surprisingly revealed that in Ondo State’s history, this Dongfeng plant would be the very first to assemble trucks in the state. This breakthrough now joins other latest achievements recorded at the Ore industrial hub. Some of these include being currently rated as one of Nigeria’s largest producers of high-quality food-grade ethanol and the first-ever MDF factory to be seen in West Africa as a whole.
