Nigeria’s economic development depends on the youths’ creativity, technology innovation – Osinbajo

Nigeria’s Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said that the country’s economic development depends on the youths’ creativity and technology innovation to improve the skills acquisition introduced by some universities to boost self-reliance of graduates.

The Vice President, who spoke yesterday in Yola during the launching of the first Nigerian humanitarian innovation hub, said the hub was designed by the Nigerian National Social Investments to foster creative local solutions that can be developed to address humanitarian crisis resulting from the ongoing conflict in the North-East region.

He stated that the aim of the project was to identify priority challenges to be tackled in the North-East region, such as access to food, water, health, education and shelter, said government’s industrialisation programmes in the past failed because youths were not involved to give them the opportunity to use their creativity to develop technology for economic development.

He however expressed the commitment of the Federal Government to make more investment in science and technology to stimulate economic growth and create innovative solutions, which are catalysts to accelerated development.
