For Nigeria to be economically independent and globally competitive, it must prioritise research and innovation, the Vice President, ICT, Abuja Chamber of Commerce and Industry, ACCI, Prof. Adesoji Adesogba has said.
He said Nigeria must prioritise research, innovation and commercialization of the findings to produce what it needs and be globally competitive.
The don averred that there is so much competition with what is happening now as is being demonstrated by China, maintaining that without Nigeria embracing research, innovation and commercialization which determines that we must take research from research institutes to the markets and working the private sector, it is going to be very difficult for us to be competitive.
He said: ‘‘You can see what China has been able to do within the past 30 years through adequate learning, research and innovation and ensuring that they live ahead of their competition.”
