The National Automotive Design and Development Council (NADDC) and SIMBA Group of Company in collaboration with Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University (ATBU) Bauchi has trained 94 road-side technicians on how to properly repair modern vehicles.
Mr Jatto Wisdom, the NADDC head of training, disclosed this at the closing ceremony of four days skills acquisition session for the road-side technicians in Bauchi on Thursday.
He explained that the training session was carried out in collaboration with SIMBA Group and Faculty of Technology and Vocational Education ATBU Bauchi to improve the skills of the road-side technicians who don’t have the basic learning skills on modern cars, trycles and motorcyles’ repairs in the state.
"The programme was aimed at updating the knowledge of the technicians on modern skills on how to fix motorcycles and tricycles as well as improve their occupations," he said.
Wisdom said that similar trainings were conducted in Sokoto, Kebbi and Katsina states where over 5, 000 people were trained.

He said certificates of attendants would be issued to all the participants for attending the four days skills acquisition training on modern technology.
Also, the Vice Chancellor, ATBU, Professor Saminu Ibrahim, who was represented by the Dean, Faculty of Technology and Vocational Education, Professor Abubakar Bappa, commended NADDC for the gesture.
He urged the trainees to make good use of the knowledge and the new skills on modern repairs of vehicles acquired to also extend to others across the state.
Bappa said the training was timely because most vehicles are now becoming more electronic and modernised.
