President Muhammadu Buhari and the Board Chairman of the National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI) has tasked the Scientific Equipment Development Institute (SEDI) —the development centre of the institute, to produce laboratory apparatus for schools at all levels.
The Managing Director of the Institute, Prof Mohammed Baba Ndaliman, revealed this while distributing N6.4 million worth of kits manufactured by the institute to selected primary and secondary schools in Niger State.
He said the president had also charged the institute on research to develop systems for mass production of scientific equipment for research, industries and higher institutions as well as measuring and controlling instruments for electrical electronics, mechanical workshops and artisans among others.
He said the institute had lived up to its responsibilities by evolving several kits for science practicals in schools but was challenged with low level of awareness among stakeholders, hence the need to distribute them to public schools.
