FG scores Nnewi high on industrialization, technology

From David Onwuchekwa, Nnewi

Minister of Science and Technology, Dr Ogbonnaya Onu, yesterday, said the people of  Nnewi in Anambra state have shown Nigeria the direction to go in industrialization and technology development with their resolve to produce most of the things imported from overseas in Nnewi.

Speaking during an interactive session and certificate presentation ceremony to graduands and entrepreneurs of Technology Incubation Center, Nnewi, Dr Onu said the people of Nnewi started producing motor spare parts adding that today the most notable vehicle producing company, Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing Company ( IVM ) is located in Nnewi.

“We cannot continue to be importing some of the things we can produce in Nigeria. It does not benefit us as a great nation. If we continue importing, we end up exporting jobs and make our people to remain unemployed while we are employing foreigners and we equally deny ourselves some revenues we would have earned,” he said.

While commending the 14 graduands for acquiring the skills and technology to develop and employ labour, he promised them that the Ministry would help them acquire funds for establishing their small and medium scale industries.

Governor of Anambra state, Chief Willie Obiano who was represented by the Commissioner for Mineral Resources, Science and Technology, Dr Chiene Emeka, said that the state is desirous of close collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Science and Technology to train various categories of entrepreneurs

The Director General, National Board for Technology Incubation, NBTI, Dr Mohammed Jubrin also noted that previous graduands of TIC, Nnewi had presented success stories as they are now part of the key players of the Nigerian economy.

    The so-called FG are fulani criminal terrorists hidden under the fraudulent political name Nigeria which do not have legitimacy, no legacy to talk about affairs of the natives of this territory under the natives Disintegrated Republics. The fraudulent political name Nigeria they hid under is dead- it is Yugoslavia of Africa. The fulani criminal terrorists should only care about their existence in the desert they belong with their cows. Industrial developments in Biafra Republic will expand to other Republics of the natives- Niger Delta Republic, Oduduwa Republic, North East Republic, North West Republic, North Central Republic, under the natives Disintegrated Republics economic cooperation and assistance etc. There will also be developments in education, employment, job, salary, pension, business, public infrastructures, amenities etc. It is Liberation of the natives, Freedom of the natives in 21st century world, which must be defended in the ongoing Revolution War of the natives. God Is With Us!!!
