Youths Reject Call To Slash NASENI’s Grant

The Coalition of Concerned Civil Society Organisations of Nigeria (CCCSON) has rejected calls by the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) to slash the one per cent grant due for the National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI) to 0.2 per cent.

The youths said doing so would further put the country into economic crises, noting that the agency in recent times had helped greatly in developing local capacities and capabilities which in return had taken the country from a consumer-based economy to knowledge-based innovative and manufacturing economy with significant and visible benefits.

The governors had advised President Muhammadu Buhari to reduce the one per cent grant legally due for the agency to 0.2 per cent and amend the act of the agency in the 2022 Finance Bill to rescue the nation’s economy from collapse.
