Union urges FCT minister on mechanic villages
The Nigerian Automotive Technicians Association (NATA) has urged the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Senator Bala Mohammed to look into the plight of its members.
The body has members drawn from auto mechanics, auto-rewire, auto air-conditional, auto-battery chargers and wheel- alignment.
The association made the call at its National Executive Council meeting in Abuja, last week, urging the minister to improve the operating environment of its members.
Addressing the media on the outcome of the meeting, National President of the body Comrade Ajayi Omonayin, commended Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha for uniting all automobile technicians under the auspices of NATA and Ogun State Governor Ibikunle Amosun for his cordial relationship with NATA.
Other resolutions reached at the meeting were the adoption of their registration certificate from the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), continued empowerment of members, especially the apprentices, through the Federal Government SURE-P programme, SMEDAN and NDE.
