Recently, a facebook user Aguocha Chinwendum, shared The story of Alex Ephraim, who owns a modernized and automated mechanic workshop in Owerri.
He is the same man who IMO state government of Rochas Okorocha reportedly entered into a deal with him (during the Governor’s first term) to produce all kinds of machines that would have transformed the state to a large extent under the auspices of ICAPS; which the government eventually frustrated and Engr Alex pulled out).

The foreign-trained automechanical expert relocated to his base in Owerri and continued pursuit of his dream.

In a private workshop of no larger than two plots of land, he had set up a car manufacturing plant here in Owerri. And he already had a finished product sample.
That’s not the best part. He has a catalog of various car designs and specs. You peruse the catalog, choose any design you like and he produces it for you with any type of facilities or utilities or technology you desire, be it reverse camera, or air conditioner, or speed control system. His is the first known car manufacturing firm with well developed customization services in Nigeria.
He has a team of young men he picked and trained. They are specialists in their various fields of auto mechanical craft.
No material is a waste. He runs a very efficient recycling process.
Recently, he carried out a road test of his sample car. The IMO state commissioner of Police refused to deny himself the opportunity of seeing and testing the vehicle. The crowd that trailed the road test from his workshop to certain parts of Owerri was massive.
Alex hails from Nwangele LGA of IMO State.
