Nigeria Has No Reason To Be Poor, Says Onu


The Minister of Science and Technology, Dr Ogbonaya Onu, has asserted that Nigeria has no reason being a poor nation or its people go hungry considering the vast natural resources the country is blessed with in almost every part of the country.

The Minister says the reasons Nigerian is presently facing hard times was because past governments always paid lip service to the issue of diversifying the economy but ended up doing nothing, not even oil and gas which has enormous potentials.

Dr. Onu, who spoke during a visit to the Bioresources Development Centre (BIODEC), Odi, Bayelsa state, says it was this reason the Federal Government is poised to use science and technology to diversify the Nigerian economy.
