Ministerial screening: Nigeria will be like China in next 30 to 50 years – Ogbonnaya Onu




Ogbonnaya Onu, one of President Muhammadu Buhari’s Ministerial nominee, has said that President has the capacity to make Nigeria as advanced as China.

Onu, a former Minister of Science and Technology, said Nigeria will be as advanced as China in the next 30 to 50 years with the help of Buhari’s drive for innovation.

He said this during his ministerial screening on the floor of the Senate on Wednesday.

“We were able to bring into existence a revolutionary Executive Order N5. By that executive order, once fully implemented, Nigeria will have a knowledge economy that is innovation-driven; and in the next 30 to 50 years, nobody will imagine the level of development in our country.

“We’ll just be like China is today in terms of advancement and those who traveled to China 30 years ago know the implication of what I’m saying. Definitely, it’ll take a lot of time,” he said.

Onu is one of the 43 ministerial nominees Buhari sent to the Senate for confirmation.

Senate is currently screening nominees on the list Buhari sent to them for confirmation as Ministers.
