Speaking about his position, Onu stressed the importance of science and technology for the progress of the country. To prove his point, the minister referred to the example of the United States of America.
“I want you to go home with these words: no nation from the beginning of time has ever become great without embracing science and technology.
“The U.S. is the greatest power in the world; the largest economy, the strongest military and the U.S. has the highest diplomatic potential that she has used in the maintenance of peace all over the world.
“But the U.S. was able, is able and will continue to do so, so long as it is leading in science and technology.”
He further explained that science would help Nigerian to achieve great goals.
“Science and technology will take Nigeria to a height unimagined today; we will do our best to be the instruments that Nigeria will use to get to that height. And I need your prayers; I need your support.”
