THE Federal Government of Nigeria is to build one standard laboratory in a university in each geo-political zone of the country.
Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Science and Technology, Mr. Bitrus Nabasu, disclosed this while receiving the award of Icon for Societal Change from the national leadership of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) in Abuja.
Nabasu told the delegation that government was determined to implement the recently signed Executive Order 5 which would make Nigeria a knowledge-based economy by 2030.
Nigeria, according to him, would be among the top 20 economies in the world in no distant time due to the policies of the federal government.
