The Federal government has given N66 million to 56 technology inventors to help them turn their inventions into finished products. Do you think it is enough?
Presenting the cheques to the inventors in Abuja yesterday, the minister of Science and Technology, Dr Ogbonnaya Onu, said the Muhammadu Buhari administration was bent on pulling Nigeria out of the economic woods by making it an industrialised nation.
He said the FG’s N66m gesture to the tech inventors would create thousands of jobs across the country once their industries take off.
One of the inventors, Dr Ezekiel Izuogu, who designed and made an energy generating device, claimed his invention could solve Nigeria’s energy needs.
