Nigerians Will Soon Produce An Aircraft- Vice President Sambo

The quest by Nigeria to have an aircraft made by Nigerians will soon be realised if the effort of the Federal Government is anything to go by.

Vice President Mohammed Namadi Sambo disclosed this Tuesday in Abuja while inaugurating the new boards of the National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASEI) as well as the governing board of the Infrastructure Concession Regulatory Commission (ICRC) in his office.

Vice President Sambo told the members to attract accelerated investments with good funding prospects and at least 5, 000 new businesses into the country in no distant time.

The vice president called on the governing board of the ICRC to move swiftly to ensure that the second Niger Bridge, development of the seaports and concession of railway lines are achieved as soon as possible.

According to him, innovations and creativity will enable Nigeria be at the forefront in attaining the challenge of knowledge based global economy.

This is the first time the board of NASEI is being chaired by a democratically elected president. It has remained in limbo after its establishment in 1992.

The Nigerian government gave them a new charge to deliver new ideas and technology in line with the transformation agenda

Turning to the governing board of the ICRC, the federal government told them to “deliver expeditiously on many Public Private Partnerships (PPP) projects scattered across the country”.

The chairman of the ICRC is the former senate president, Mr. Ken Nnamani. The commission was initiated during his tenure as senate president following the slow pace of infrastructure development in the country.
