The Motor Mechanic and Technicians Associations of Nigeria (MOMTAN) on Saturday appealed to the Lagos State Government not to carry out its plans to demolish workshops of some of its members.
The Grand Patron of the association, Mrs Mulikat Sanni, made the appeal in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos.
She said that the plan to demolish some workshops in the state would throw some MOMTAN’s members out of business.
Sanni added that the demolition would contribute to unemployment.
“We are appealing to the Lagos State Government to reverse its plans to demolish some workshops of our members.
“This is because we will be out of business if some of these workshops marked for demolition are eventually brought down.
“If it happens, livelihoods will suffer because this is what our members depend on,” she said.
Sanni, however, said if some of the workshops must be demolished for development reason, the government should provide alternative places.
She said that it would help to sustain government’s efforts at boosting the informal sector to create jobs.
The grand patron urged the state government to support the association in capacity building of its members and granting of micro-credit.
She said that automobile mechanics were important to the development of the economy through their services.
Sanni called on the federal and state governments to formulate policies that would help mechanics to develop their businesses.
She commended the Majority Leader of House of Representatives, Mr Femi Gbajabiamila, for giving some equipment and money to some mechanics in his Surulere 1 Federal Constituency.
She said that the gesture would help the beneficiaries to improve their services and grow their businesses.
Sanni appealed to Gbajabiamila to support the association more.
NAN reports that Gbajabiamila had on Tuesday presented computerised diagnostic equipment, including scanners to 52 mechanics in Surulere.
He also gave each of them N50,000 to support their businesses.
The lawmaker said that the gesture was to support businesses in the area and impact on lives. (NAN)

Jonathan spoke at the inauguration of the first bridge built by Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State in Ado Ekiti, the state capital, on Friday night.
The former President lamented that things were so bad in the country that Nigeria had lost its respect in Africa.
He said, “He (Ghanaian President) said Ghana is not like Nigeria where cattle roam the streets. At another occasion in the United Kingdom, he made scathing remarks about Nigeria’s currency.
“I feel ashamed as a former President that the president of a neighbouring country used Nigeria as negative examples.
“If a neighbouring African president will use Nigeria to make negative examples, then we as leaders must know certain things are wrong in the country. That means we as leaders must change the way we do things.”
The former President, therefore, urged Nigerian leaders to show serious concern, noting that many things had gone wrong in the country.
When Linda Ikeji revealed that she was pregnant, there were two major reactions: Elation as people rushed to congratulate her on the pregnancy and infuriation from those who believes that Linda led them along preaching celibacy while not practising it.
Controversial OAP Daddy Freeze has now waded into the matter saying that Linda is in no way in the wrong.
He took to his Instagram to write a lengthy post which included parts of the Torah and stating that she had not broken any rules.
He also claimed that since the laws allowed for sex between 2 people who are set to wed, then there was nothing wrong and that what Linda did was in line with the old law. He also said that since neither Jesus nor his disciples changed this law, then it is still valid.

“Who is this forlorn schmuck?
The only people leading Nigerians to hell are the GOs you dingleberries, NO ONE ELSE!
@officiallindaikeji isn’t really wrong.
According to Torah law, marriage is a two-step process. The first stage is called “kiddushin,” and the second step is known as “nisu’in.” Kiddushin is commonly translated as betrothal, it’s like the modern day ‘knocking on the door’ but actually renders the bride and groom full-fledged husband and wife. Betrothal is either through a contract, or through SEX!
However, the bride and groom are not permitted to live together as husband and wife until the second stage, the nisu’in, is completed.
Now, another instance is recorded in the Bible:
◄ Exodus 22:16 ►
“If a man seduces a virgin who is not pledged to be married and sleeps with her, he must pay the bride-price, and she shall be his wife.
Sex clearly came before marriage in this instance.
So if Linda is bethrothed to be married, or is going to marry the one who got her pregnant, she is assumed to be in line with the Jewish customs, Jesus NEVER CHANGED THE MARRIAGE TRADITIONS, neither did the disciples.
Now this does not make a case for sexual immorality outside marriage, it’s just for genuine couples who are betrothed, or a couple who eventually marry.
The Greek word for “fornication” is “porneia”, which means ‘harlotry’ NOT PREMARITAL SEX by an engaged couple. Harlotry is prostitution!
The GOs are the ones leading people to hell because they are teaching the law, tithing is the LAW, first fruit is the LAW, the law is sinful, it puts you under a curse(Gal3:10) and cuts you off from Christ!(Gal5:4)
◄ Matthew 23 ►
 “What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you shut the door of the Kingdom of Heaven in people’s faces. You won’t go in yourselves, and you don’t let others enter either.
◄ Galatians 2 ►
 But suppose we seek to be made right with God through faith in Christ and then we are found guilty because we have abandoned the law. Would that mean Christ has led us into sin? Absolutely not!  Rather, I am a sinner if I rebuild the old system of law I already tore down.”
The lady who was involved in the sex-for-marks scandal which hit Obafemi Awolowo University has spoken to CNN about her experience with the randy lecturer.
Recall that the girl, Monica Osagie, leaked a phone call with the lecturer who demanded to have sex with her 5 times in order to raise her scores.
She claimed in an interview with CNN, that she had helped the lecturer edit his book and that was how they became close in the first place.
She said: “We actually edited the book together… Then, the next thing he told me was, ‘Can you date me?’ I was like, ‘No.’ He was like, ‘Why?’ I said, ‘One, I don’t date lecturers, and secondly, you are more matured than I am.'”
She is also of the belief that the lecturer gave her the low scores because he wanted to put her in a position where she’d have to sleep with him.
“He kept calling me to ask if I was ready to accept his proposal. So, I decided to record our next conversation,” she said
She also disclosed how she has since then been harassed both in person and on social media over the incident with not everyone believing her story.
“A guy came up to me at the bank and said, ‘Is this not the girl who harassed a lecturer?’ and he called me a prostitute. The security guard then had to push me away to go withdraw my money inside the bank,”
“I am actually happy I came out. I am helping many ladies that have gone through the same thing I have gone through, and most of them can’t talk about it.
“They are scared of coming out in public. But I know it happens everywhere, not just in Nigeria. For me, speaking up will bring more women to speak and eradicate what is happening around young women and older men,”
There was pandemonium in the early hours of today, after a suspected rapist stormed the Methodist Girls’ Secondary School, Ovim, Abia State, to attack students.
It was gathered that many student were left injured during the attack.
The victims are currently receiving treatment at a nearby hospital.
Yoruba actor and filmmaker, Afeez Owo, was one of the actors who honoured the candle and artistes’ night of late Aisha Abimbola, aka Omoge Campus.
Speaking with GoldmyneTV at the ceremony held at LTV 8, Alausa, Lagos, Owo said the last time he saw her, she said she was dieting.He stated, “The last time I saw her she told me she was dieting when I asked why she was looking slim. It was later I heard she had cancer. She found it difficult to share her plights with the public. She knew that if she had told the public, they would have donated money for her and she did not want that. But I don’t think it is bad if you are in trouble and you let the public know. Even when you have money, you still need to share things with people.”
According to him, he had known Aisha for close to 12 years, insisting that they were very close before death.
“At a time, we were working together for Korede Productions. She was a nice lady, though no one is perfect. I feel pained when I heard about her. I will miss her person because she was very calm. If death looks personalities, she should not die,” he opened up.
