The Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, Dr. Adeleke Mamora, has directed the governing board of the Raw Materials Research and Development Council (RMRDC) to ensure that raw materials are transformed into finished and revenue-generating products.

Adeleke made this call during the inauguration of the governing board yesterday (August 11, 2022) in his office in Abuja.

He called on the members of the board to work assiduously toward the industrialisation and meaningful progress of the country.

Mamora noted that meaningful progress cannot be achieved in the absence of peace, unity and collaboration in any organisation and enjoined them to work as a team to achieve the national progressive goal.

He further reasoned with the board to use its wealth of experience to lift the agency to greater heights, as potential will always remain until it is translated into a useful product.

The minister warned the board to refrain from interfering with the daily administration of the organisation; rather, make policies that can drive the growth of the agency.

Mamora encouraged the board members to collaborate, communicate, cooperate, coordinate and be cordial to contribute their quota towards the development and growth of the country.

Earlier, the Minister of State for Science, Technology and Innovation (FMSTI), Chief Henry Ikoh remarked that board members are selected based on track records as Nigeria is moving from a resource to a knowledge-based economy.

He assured them that the FMSTI will always encourage them and work with RMRDC for meaningful progress.

In her remarks, the permanent secretary of the ministry, Mrs. Monilola Udoh assured the members of the ministry’s readiness to ensure the success of the organisation.

Responding on behalf of the board, the chairman, Hon. Isa Sadiq Acida said the board considers the opportunity to serve and make a mark in the economic development of Nigeria a golden one.

He further stated that the RMRDC is an important catalyst in bringing about speedy growth and development in the country through its mandate of development and utilisation of Nigerian industrial raw materials.

In a statement by the ministry’s deputy director, press and public relations, Atuora Obed, Acida also reiterated that raw materials and development will make a greater impact on the nation’s economy by ensuring that more resources are harnessed to build the nation’s industrial and agricultural sectors, to improve her balance of payment in international trade and raise the living standard of Nigerians.
