• FG To Set Up 6 Science Museums This Year.

    The Federal Government will build a Science and Technology museum in each of the six geo-political zones of the country in 2016 according to the Nigerian Minister of Science and Technology, Dr Ogbonnaya Onu.

    Speaking at a News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) forum in Abuja, Onu explained that the idea was to stimulate children’s interest in science and technology.

    “The science museum is very important. We want our young people to have interest in science and technology.

    “A Science and Technology and Innovation Museum will do a lot for us”, Onu said.


    He continued, “One, all the natural phenomena that happen – lightning, rainfall – we will have explanations on them there.

    “All these little equipment and so on, we will put it in a way that children will start developing interest from early age.

    “Then adults will also like to go in because we also showcase major achievements of science and technology across the country.

    “It will take us time to get it built but it is very important; there is no major country that does not have many of those”.
