The federal government is planning to create an Innovation and Technology Advisory Council to support the creativity of young Nigerians, says Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.
The vice president made this known on Tuesday while speaking with reporters after visiting seven technology and innovation hubs in different parts of Lagos.
“Already, we have an Industrial and Competitiveness Council. But what we want to look at is doing one for technology and one for innovation as well so that we bring in some of the key players and thinkers around technology, working with the government and working with government officials to develop policy and to develop all of the various ways by which we can help them to what they are doing better,” he said.
Osinbajo also said, “I have seen for myself the sheer creativity and completely blown with what I see here and other places.”
