The Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation (STI), Dr. Adeleke Mamora, has revealed that the ministry will collaborate with the Academy of Medicine Specialties and other relevant agencies in medical science technology.

 The minister said this when a delegation from the Academy of Medicine Specialties of Nigeria (AMSN) paid him a courtesy visit in his office, in Abuja.

He stated that the role of science cannot be overemphasised in national development and that science, technology and innovation remain the engine room of desired growth and progress of any nation, including Nigeria.

The minister emphasised that the government cannot achieve it alone; rather, in collaboration and with the collective efforts of public sectors. He stressed that Nigeria is blessed with both human and natural resources but needs to harness them to move the country forward.

He explained that the essence of STI is to acquire knowledge through research, because “potential remains potential until it manifests to reality’’. He went ahead to call on the various stakeholders to key into Nigeria’s STI development projects.

Speaking, the Minister of State for Science, Technology and Innovation, Chief Henry Ikoh said that the importance of research is to look for knowledge, as knowledge represents power and, with the cooperation of the relevant agencies and the Academy of Medicine Specialties, Nigeria will attain greater heights.

Earlier, the president of the academy, Prof. Oladapo Ashiru said that their visit aimed to collaborate with the ministry to offer expertise that will positively impact mutual areas of interest and contribute to aligning existing and future policies of the ministry.

According to him, the academy recognises the pivotal role of the ministry as it is charged with facilitating the development and employment of Science Technology and Innovation (STI) in Nigeria.
