Abuja Automobile Mechanics Find Federal Govt’s Guidance

Motor mechanics in the Federal Money Territory (FCT) running less than the umbrella of Apo Mechanics and Spare Parts Sellers Association, yesterday pledged unalloyed aid and cooperation with the federal authorities in the direction of transforming the nation’s economy.

According to Ndubuisi, “It is only in Nigeria that we really don’t use cars and spare them for other international locations. They travel vehicles in Europe and other sophisticated nations and you go and invest in them and contact them Tokumbo, and we are pleased to acquire them, but in Nigeria, right after we have used cars, we scrap them. That is why we want to partner with the govt so that they can give us assist to offer technological options to these challenges.”

And due to the fact we have been lagging guiding, we attended it for the 1st time given that inception 7 yrs ago.

“And what we have come to showcase, (aside from the Hilux van you can see outside there), we have other upgraded cars and trucks these types of as Hilux 2007 Design (upgraded to 2020 Model), Land Cruiser 2008 product (upgraded to 2018 product) and so on”.

Ndubuisi additional that Apo mechanics not only improve, they also fabricate and refurbish the engines and convey them back to comprehensive capacity.

Speaking even more, Ndubuisi, who explained the government romance with the affiliation as cordial, also knowledgeable that most government businesses patronize them, specially the model of Hilux upgraded to the new model 2020.

Ndubuisi stated, as mechanics, they derive fulfillment from the truth that aside from generating careers for several youths, they have married, raised and properly trained little ones to college, built properties and their specialized ingenuity is getting recognised, counseled and patronised.
