On Arewa Youths Call For Increased Funding For Science And Technology Sector

 

The Arewa Youth for peace and security after performance evaluation of all the components of the Nigerian government during the COVID-19 Pandemic, have appealed to the federal government to increase budgetary allocation to the Federal Ministry of Science & Technology.

This is going by the unalloyed roles they played through two of their parastatals namely; The Raw Materials Research & Development Council, National Science & Technology Incubation Centre and the Sheda Science & Technology Centre.

They played patriotic roles by producing facemasks, ventilators and hand sanitizers at the onset of COVID-19, which in no small way eased tensions related to the scarcity of ventilators that led to the demise of some patients quarantined at the various isolation Centres across the country, who required ventilators to breathe at a time when it was scarce.
