While there, it was a pleasant surprise to behold some Innoson high capacity buses being deployed for the Intra-state and city transportation in and around Delta State.
This revelation was particularly impressive given that the Delta state government was not paying lip services to the campaign for the patronage of indigenous manufacturing brands.
From our investigations, we learnt that over 30 Innoson high capacity buses are part of a fleet of nearly 1,000 modern buses operated by the Delta State Mass Transport Programme and its Private Public Partners.
Note that the Anambra state Governor, Wilie Obiano, came under heavy backlash on social media during his re-election campaign when he acquired 2 Innoson buses for his campaign.
Some of the critics accused the governor of patronizing foreign brands to the detriment of the local ones, saying he only rushed and bought two Innoson buses after he was criticized.
The high capacity Innoson mass transit buses used for mass transit in Delta state were acquired during the administration of Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan.
