The Minister of Innovation, Science and Technology, Chief Uche Geoffrey Nnaji, has said that the federal government is determined to strengthen local content integration in innovation, science and technology across the critical sectors of the economy with the aim of lifting 50 million Nigerian youths out of poverty.

The minister stated this at the flag off of the National Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Conversion Capacity Building titled: “Train The Trainee”, organised by the Federal Institute of Industrial Research Oshodi (FIIRO) in Abuja yesterday.

He emphasised that training youths in auto gas conversion would drive economic diversification, create job opportunities, self-reliance and reduce youth restiveness.

He said, Economic growth thrives on innovation, science and technology. Our ministry is committed to contributing to Nigeria’s development by building capacity in these areas. Since assuming office in 2023, we have focused on achieving the priority areas outlined in the Renewed Hope agenda of our dear President and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, Bola Ahmed Tinubu. The priority areas are economic reform, national security, agricultural growth, energy development, infrastructure enhancement, education, health, social investment, industrialisation and improved governance.’’
