Members of the Nigeria Automobile Technicians Association (NATA) have been commended over their efforts to ensure the use of good and standard vehicles on Nigerian roads.
Making this statement was Mr. Hakeem Odumosu, the Commissioner of Police, Edo State in his opening remarks as a Chairperson at a seminar organised by Automobiles And Road Safety Initiative and Edo State branch of NATA on Usage of Genuine Engine Oil Advocacy.
The police commissioner represented by Superintendent of Police Daniel Ogbee of the command’s Department of Operations had earlier disclosed that the Nigeria Police Force and the Federal Road safety Commission were under immense pressure to ensure the safety of lives and properties on Nigeria roads and in the country at large.
CP Odumosu also commended NATA on their efforts geared towards sensitising stakeholders on dangers of using fake auto parts and lubricants saying, “Even though no national government issued or standardised Code of Ethics exists for auto mechanics, many repair shops and automotive associations adhere to a set of industry-specific quality reliable repairs at affordable costs and making sure that clients receive excellent customer services. Even though the code of ethics may vary by business guidelines that strive to ensure professional business practices.
The Commissioner of Police also commended the automobile technicians on use of car parts and labour costs, as he reiterated that “Most trusted mechanics pledge quality repairs and use reliable proven car parts and products to service their clients’ vehicles. Customers rely on auto mechanics to repair and replace vehicle parts at reasonable costs without unjustly inflating cost or labour expenses.”
The seminar had in attendance men of Federal Road Safety Commission, producers and marketers of lubricants, men and women of Vehicle Inspection Service, transporters and other stakeholders in the Automobile Industry.
