NADDC to build Integrated Auto-Mechanic Village in Katsina

The Executive Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina state has expressed support for an integrated automobile body, mechanical and spare parts village project, which will help coordinate auto mechanics in the state.

The Mechanics Village Project which will serve as a skill acquisition center for an apprenticeship, is expected to create jobs, reduce environmental impact as well as reduce city widespread concept of mechanical engineering.

Speaking in Abuja, the Katsina State Governor, H.E. Aminu Bello Masari, who received a delegation led by the Director General, National Automotive Design and Development Council (NADDC), Jelani Aliyu, MFR, said the Katsina state government is interested in the automotive development plan.

He further noted that Katsina state is looking to save revenue that is being lost and to see how, through the mechanic village, there will be cross-fertilization of ideas which will be of immense benefit to the entire country.

Governor Bello Masari noted that the mechanics’ village had always existed but lacked organizational structure and regulations, stressing that the Integrated Mechanics Village will bring about regulation which will, in turn, save revenue.

According to him, the transportation sector is the backbone of the economy, transportation governs really our lives, but the problem in the sector is due to the lack of organization and there is confusion in the sector.

The Governor pointed out that there is a huge opportunity in Nigeria for the transportation sector to grow, prayed that NADDC will get all the necessary support and urged them to seek partnership with other state governments.

Earlier in his presentation, the NADDC Director General, Mr. Jelani Aliyu, MFR, expressed excitement that Katsina State Government is embarking on the mechanics’ village project, adding that the only viable future in Nigeria is one where the youth are empowered and the Government provides a conducive environment to do business.

He also noted that the automobile sector has the capability to provide thousands of direct and indirect jobs, as $8 billion is spent by Nigeria to bring in automobiles from overseas annually.

He revealed that the NADDC is building three automobile industrial parks and three automotive testing centers in Zaria, Enugu, and Lagos, and expressed hopes to extend the initiative to Katsina state.

He further said that the use of electricity to power vehicles and vehicles that power themselves is important, adding that electrification of vehicles will be included in the training for the students so that Nigeria can be at par with the rest of the world.
