Executive Order Will Lead Nigeria To Manufacturing Economy – NASENI



The Executive Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI), Professor Mohammed Sani Haruna, yesterday said Executive Order 5 initiated by President Muhammadu Buhari will transform the nation’s economy.

He said the order will enable Nigeria to have a transition from a commodity-based economy to manufacturing and knowledge-based economy in the country.

He said the order will also revolutionise the activities of the agency and ensure adequate patronage for the products of the organisation when faithfully implemented.

Haruna made the submissions in Abuja while receiving an award of excellence and  labour friendliness by the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Research Institutions (ASURI).

He said:  “Executive Order 5 which enforces the patronization of local professionals, it is not only an order but it has gone far in the National Assembly.

“ This singular order has promised to revolutionize our activities. It is the implementation of the order that will guarantee a transition from a commodity based economy to manufacturing and knowledge based economy in the country.

“I commend President Muhammadu Buhari for initiating this transformation order.”

Haruna thanked the Union for the honour and said the award was for the entire NASENI family.

He said the award signified hope and development for the country.

Haruna said: “This award signifies harmony. It comes from the body of esearchers. Those that gave me the award are those that are doing this work.

“We thought that we used to disturb them by giving them difficult tasks with short deadlines to deliver on products and services that the nation wants despite the impression that we are not allowing them

rest they are still commending me for that. So it signifies hope and development for the nation.

Presenting the award, the coordinating chairman of ASURI-NASENI, Dr. Oluwaseyi Akinyele Ogunbenro, said it was in recognition of the uncommon labour friendliness and professional excellence of the EVC.
