The Enugu State Government has promised to provide an office accommodation for NACETEM
This promise was made when representatives of NACETEM met with the executive members of the Enugu State Government on Wednesday, 9th of March, 2011 to discuss the establishment of NACETEM’s South-East Zonal Office in the State. The Director-General/CEO of NACETEM, Dr. Willie Siyanbola, who led NACETEM’s team met with the Enugu State Commissioner for Science and Technology, the Permanent Secretary, Enugu State Ministry of Science and Technology and other officials of the Enugu State Government.
Dr Siyanbola explained why Science and Technology (S&T) is important to development and how S&T can be used to drive development. He also explained NACETEM’s pivotal role in Nigeria’s quest to accelerate development through Science and Technology. Responding to Dr Siyanbola’s presentation, the Honourable Commissioner for Science and Technology, who was obviously impressed said the State Government had agreed to provide NACETEM with an office accommodation. He then asked NACETEM to write a letter to the State Government so that the process of providing the promised accommodation could start.
