Deputy State Marshal, NATA Delta State Council
Soft spoken, well built, but with average height, Lady Emoyan Onajite, who was born on 24th day of April, 1977 in Warri, Delta State made history as the First Lady Mechanic to learn the trade and put it into practice in Delta State, Nigeria.
Lady Emoyan Onajite attended Pessu Primary School, Warri, Delta State between 1985 and June, 1991; before proceeding to Uwange College, Warri, Delta State (September, 1991 to June, 1996) for her secondary school education.
Yearning to learn a professional trade immediately she graduated from college, Lady Emoyan Onajite chose a male-dominated profession as her uppermost area of interest; thereby enrolling to learn the rudiments of Auto Repairs/Maintenance; specialising on Peugeot brands of vehicle.
Upon graduation, she established her own auto repair workshop, but was always craving for further knowledge in the industry to make her blend.
This made her to attend various re-training seminars and courses and she was able to shift attention from the repairs/maintenance of Peugeot (vehicle) brands to the repair and maintenance of Japanese brands of vehicles; Toyota, Nissan, Mazda and Honda; of which she is now a more respectable expert.
Lady Emoyan Onajite joined Nigeria Automobile Technicians Association (NATA) at Ernehen Road Unit of Delta State Council upon graduation and she was appointed a NATA Marshal in the Unit; from where she got elevated to the Local Government Area Branch and was later promoted NATA Delta State Council Deputy State Marshal; the post she still occupies till date.
A very vocal unionist, Lady Emoyan Onajite is a goal-getter; who all those who aspire to occupy sensitive posts in NATA within her coverage area ran to, to pitch their tents when it comes to NATA politics. And she had been noted to always deliver!
During the NATA; 6th National Quadrennial Delegates Conference in Benin City, Edo State, Nigeria between Tuesday 16th and Wednesday 17th January, 2018 Lady Emoyan Onajite played a prominent role for her NATA, South-South Zone’s contestants by openly moving freely around the election venue (as the only Lady Mechanic present); to campaign for the election of her Zone’s preferred choices.
To her credit, she had trained 6 other ladies to master vehicle repairs/maintenance as well as 2 other young vibrant men.
