Automobile mechanics operating in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) have decried lack of patronage since the rising cases of COVID-19 in Nigeria necessitated a federal government imposed lockdown.
So, in order to keep their businesses afloat, they have created an online platform where they now render services and they also go to the homes of their customers for the same.
Auto mechanic workshops have remained shut both in the city centre and satellite towns of the territory.
Since the imposition of the lockdown to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, the city centre and the suburbs have witnessed light traffic on the roads.
Some of the operators told Newsmen that the lockdown has caused a huge decline in their business, stressing that they had to resort to rendering home services to meet their families’ needs.
