 25/11/22


Senator representing Anambra Central District Iyom Uche Ekwunife has called for the Commercialization of local innovations and inventions to encourage local manufacturers. 


This is coming as the Anambra state government has so far invested over N250 million for the establishment of Automotive Industrial Park at Akwa - Ihedi -: Uga Communities in the area .


Ekwunife who is the chairman Senate Committee on Science and Technology disclosed this at the opening ceremony of the National Innovation Workshop in Awka Anambra state noted that ; 


"Evidence from around the world has proved that research and innovation are necessary growth determinants which must work together to attain sustainable national growth and development.


"For instance innovation can be commercialized by firm's but in Nigeria only a small proportion of entrepreneurial start ups are engaged in radical innovation.


"In this era of rapidly changing technology and reduced product life cycles, a country"s ability to develop and successfully commercialize innovation has become a key competitive strength "


According to Gov Charles Soludo of Anambra state, "Science and Technology Innovation must be mainstreamed by the National Assembly to help jump start the process "


"Already we in Anambra state have so far spent over N250 million to establish the Automotive Industrial Park at Akwa Ihedi and Uga Communities and part of our vision is to make Anambra state the Digital tribe of Nigeria and it is important to note that these local innovations and inventions cannot grow if we don't patronize them"


Speaking earlier the former Senate President Chief Anyim Pius Anyim noted that; 


"The future I am talking about is not a distant one . You should expect some of the above imperatives to dominate our world as early as the next five years.


"Our world has certainly changed with the infusion of fourth industrial revolution and in a very short while from now , talents and innovations are going to be the only dependable capital assets: he said.
