NBTI's Mandate Key To Achieving National Wealth Creation

The National Board for Technology Incubation (NBTI) has announced that controlling the Technology Incubation Programmes (TIPs) under its purview is essential to achieving resource management and economic development across the nation.

Akinwumi Shomefun, the acting director-general of NBTI, made this statement to attendees of a capacity-building session on the development of entrepreneurs and personnel from the headquarters and centres on Wednesday in Abuja.

Participants at the programme were chosen from among the 36 technological incubation centres (TICs) run by NBTI around the nation, according to NAN.

According to Shomefun, more than 3,000 technical, inventive, and domestic goods were created by TIP entrepreneurs at various centres around the nation.

The country's thronging young may find a variety of employment opportunities by commercialising inventive ideas, which also generates wealth for investors and tax money for the government.

“Therefore, in order to take charge in innovation in Nigeria and across the world, this capacity-building is important.

“The capacity-building programme is aimed at equipping NBTI staff with necessary tools to keep up with the ever-changing technological and entrepreneurship landscape in Nigeria,’’ the acting Director-General said.

He continued by saying that the Federal Government created TIPs as a support programme with the goal of establishing and fostering nascent value-added and technology-based businesses.

“It is designed to speed up the commercialisation of technologies by effectively linking talents, technologies, capital and know-how in order to accelerate the development of new enterprises.

“Its main objective is to boost the industrial base of the country through the commercialisation of Research and Development (R&D) results, and upgrading and enhancing the application of indigenous technologies,’’ Shomefun said.

Similarly, Abubakar Nuhu, Director of Human Resource Management at NBTI, claimed that the training will give employees the information and abilities they need to increase their productivity and support economic growth.

“The development of staff is a critical intervention that seeks to enhance the capacity of staff to achieve their full potential and contribute to the nation through efficient service delivery.

“The programme is designed to provide participants with a range of practical experiences, techniques, and insights that will enable them to excel in their various roles,” he said.

In order to share ideas about best practises and learn from one another's experiences, Nuhu also invited participants to use the training as a chance to network with other attendees from other centres.

According to NAN, Virgriss Resources Ltd and NBTI worked together to organise the event.

Topics on leadership abilities, report writing, public service regulations, commercialization, and human capital development were presented to the participants.
