The Minister of Science and Technology, Dr Ogbonnaya Onu, reassures us that the Federal Government is determined to promote made-in-Nigeria products and give high preference to Nigerian professionals in executing all of government projects in a productive way towards growing the economy and this was stated when unveiling the polyurethane laboratory donated to the University of Lagos by Vitafoam.
He appreciated Vitafoam for their kind gesture, saying that it was done with the motive for nation building and would serve as a link between the academia and industrial sector and definitely help to solve problems in the manufacturing sector.
The Federal Government has issued Executive Orders, five of which would make it compulsory for all government parastatals and agencies to patronize Made-in-Nigeria products without any form of compromise to standards.
“Among the key government agencies and parastatals that will find use of the services of the polyurethane laboratory are the Standards Organisation of Nigeria, the Nigerian Automotive Design and Development Council, the Federal Ministry of Environment, and the National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control.
“It is expected that this specialized laboratory will be run as a commercial enterprise to generate revenue to fund other projects within the university. This polyurethane laboratory has an important role to play in the Federal Government’s Nigeria Industrial Revolution Plan and the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan.”
