A vehicle doors maintenance specialist Mr. Otubo Chibuike has appealed to the federal government to initiate plans to manufacture vehicle door gadgets in the country.

He called on the authorities in the country to come to the aid of local technicians by promoting the training and empowerment for local skills to boost their experience and knowledge in their chosen fields.
According to him, “this will enable us begin to build expertise and begin the process of locally producing our own technical products and also properly and effectively undertake repairs and maintenance of faulty vehicle door gadgets”.
The technician said most vehicle door winders and other gadgets are imported from Japan and other Asia nations, stressing that vehicles such as Honda, Mitsubishi and other vehicles come with automatic winders.
He pointed out that vehicles with manual winders are becoming scarce and obsolete as a result of changes in technology by western auto manufacturers
Chibuike said it took him 2 years to learn the trade adding that he has trained some persons in the repairs and servicing of all manner of vehicle door engine winders.
He told The Vortex that customers come from within and outside the state to patronize his service and expressed willingness to continue to impart his skills to anybody willing to learn the trade.
