Nigeria: Promoting Indigenous Technology For National Development | Leadership Newspapers

Nigeria: Promoting Indigenous Technology For National Development | Leadership Newspapers | TECHNOLOGY AND GROWTH IN NIGERIA | Scoop.it

It is an established fact that Nigeria is moving up in the ladder of technological innovation countries, however the lack of faith of Nigerian in Nigeria’s technological development has been a clog in the wheel of our national technological development.

 

Speaking on patronising indigenous technologies, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, said that Nigeria cannot convince other nations to patronise its technology if her citizens do not use it themselves.

 

Tukur said, “We have so much to offer in terms of technology; Nigerians are innovative, but we need to look inward, we need to promote and patronise locally manufactured technology that way we can convince others to come and patronise us.”

 

Apart from patronising indigenous technologies, experts have rightly noted that any nation which wants to grow its science and technology sector must abide by the international standard of devoting 2% to 4% of its annual budget on research and development.

 

Speaking during the National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI) Day, tagged “NASENI Techno Mart”, at the just concluded 7th Abuja International Trade Fair, the Acting Director-General/Chief Executive of NASENI, Engr. Mohammed Haruna, together with other eminent Nigerians at the ceremony, observed that “the annual budgetary allocations to Federal Ministry of Science and Technology and its parastatals, among which is NASENI, has ways been abysmally low.”

 

According to the DG, if science and technology sector were allocated adequate funds, there will certainly be an industrial revolution in the nation.
