The Minister of Science and Technology, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu has charged automobile companies to create an enabling environment for indigenous inventors to market their innovation in the automobile industry.
Speaking when he visited the 16th Abuja motor fair, Dr. Onu said automobile manufacturers should look inward by ensuring that their components and spare parts are made by Nigerian inventors.
He said this will help to grow the economy as wealth will be created and employment for the people.
Dr. Onu assured the automobile companies that agencies of the ministry are well placed to produce needed car components of very high standard, adding the National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI) has developed the capacity for reverse engineering in automobiles.
