According to him, the science and technology sector would bring about job creation, address youth restiveness and foster development at the grass root.
“The future belongs to science and technology and it belongs to harnessing our raw materials and potentials.
“I plead with the Federal Government to vote more money into science and technology so that our people can be able to do things done in developed countries which some youths lived without concrete goals, urging them to embrace goal-centered networking in view of the present economic situation in the country..
“They should stop voting money into politics but should pass legislation that will give strong vote to research on raw development council.
“If done, they will be able to harness, process and commercialize our raw materials so that we can put food on the table,” he said.
However, he, called on youths in the country to help sharpen their potential and achieve goals of self-reliance and career development.
