BIRNIWA – The Birniwa Local Area in Jigawa on Thursday urged mechanics to form an association to enable them to benefit from the council’s programmes.
Alhaji Tijjani Tafida, the council’s Director, Social and Community Services, gave the advice while meeting with the representatives of the mechanics in Birniwa.
Tafida said the measure would enable the council to register mechanics and include them in its programmes.
“It is desirable to form associations to access support programmes by the council.
“It will also enhance security and ensure proper coordination of the mechanics trade,” he said.
Also speaking, Abdulsalami Abdullahi, a spokesman of the mechanics, said they would expedite action on the process of forming the association in the area.
Meanwhile, the Malammadori Local Area has called on the commercial operators to use reflective apron while plying trade.
The council’s Sole Administrator, Alhaji Abdu, gave the directive at a meeting with members of the riders’ association in Malammadori.
Abdu said that the council had distributed reflective jackets to the riders, warning that erring riders would be penalised.
He said the use of jackets would “enhance security and safety of riders on the roads”. (NAN
