President Muhammadu Buhari Thursday in Abuja
urged the National Agency for Science and
Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI) to do more to
publicize its inventions for the benefit of Nigerians.
Speaking after a presentation to him of NASENI’s
recent work, President Buhari observed that unless
the agency’s inventions are adopted and further
developed by manufacturers, the country and
ordinary Nigerians will not enjoy the fruits of its
good work.
The President who was impressed by the
achievements and inventions presented to him at
the Presidential Villa, also directed NASENI to
explore ways of working with the Defence
Industries Corporation, Kaduna to manufacture the
light weapons it has designed.
“Looking at your work…, the laboratory equipment,
the weapons designs…., these are things that can
save us resources if you can coordinate with
existing specialist agencies and work together,”
President Buhari told the Executive Vice Chairman
of NASENI, Professor M. S. Haruna.
Apart from the light weapon designs and laboratory
equipment, other NASENI inventions presented to
President Buhari included new energy-saving LED
lamp products.
