Okowa Giving More Recognition To Mechanics –Abanum

BY FAVOUR OYIBO
AUTOMOBILE Technicians in Delta State recently gained more recognition from the new administration of Delta State, as the State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa has promised to do more to give the profession the dignity it deserves.
This was revealed by the Delta State Chairman of the National Automobile Technicians Association (NATA), Comrade Ifeanyi Abanum, while addressing the members at the inauguration of the newly elected Executives of NATA, mechanic village chapter, Sapele, recently.
He encouraged the Henry Osazele-led executive, to carry all the members of their unit along and to embark on training and retraining of members to update them with evolving trends in the automobile world.
Mr. Peterson Edewor, the Chairman of NATA, Delta State Central Chapter, while addressing the members during the event, said that he had built his personal compound, bought his personal cars, got his personal workshop and workers under him through his work as a mechanic.
He pointed out that the height God has helped him attain through this job was something some oil company workers could not achieve during the same period of time. He further encouraged all mechanics to take pride in the job, and remain committed as they can only succeed through hard work and determination. The newly inaugurated Unit Chairman, Comrade Henry Osazele, in his speech, appreciated God for the opportunity given to serve and promised to work with all members to move the union forward.
He also told the members to expect better things from his regime, as he will not disappoint them; pledging to take them to the Promised Land.
In a chat with Onajite Emoyer, the only woman in Delta State among thousands of men in this field, as claimed, she stated that she loves the job and takes pleasure in repairing cars and that she can say confidently that there is real profit in the job. She also confessed that her love for the job made her abandon her education.
She also added that the Federal Government of Nigeria will be sponsoring about twenty six mechanics from Delta State, including herself for training in Germany, so she can say that she is reaping the benefits of the profession.
