Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Rakiya A. Muham­mad, Sokoto

Nigeria needs to shift from over de­pen­dence on oil and place more em­pha­sis on har­ness­ing her other nat­u­rally en­dowed re­sources.

This was con­tained in a com­mu­nique is­sued at the end of a na­tional con­fer­ence on ‘Im­pact of Ba­sic and Ap­plied Sci­ences on Re­sources Ac­qui­si­tion and Man­age­ment’ or­gan­ised by the Fac­ulty of Sci­ence, Sokoto State Univer­sity in con­junc­tion with Al­ge­bra Group, Us­manu Dan­fodiyo Univer­sity, Sokoto.

It stressed the need for sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy to be made to play devel­op­men­tal roles in the coun­try and urged all tiers of govern­ment to pro­vide ad­e­quate man­power and up­grade skills through train­ing and re­train­ing to­wards re­source ac­qui­si­tions and man­age­ment.
