President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the establishment of an Industrial Equipment and Machinery Development Institute (IEMDI) and a Skills Acquisition Institute in Borno State.
The message was conveyed when the executive vice chairman of the National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI), Professor Mohammed Sani Haruna paid a courtesy visit to the Government House in Maiduguri on Friday.
The NASENI boss explained that the development institute was aimed at researching, designing and manufacturing tools, machines, processing, and equipment that would fast-track the establishment of cottage industries.
He added that the institute would produce spare parts of all equipment that would ensure industrialisation, not only in Borno but the entire North East.
