President Bola Tinubu has directed key Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) of the Federal Government to ensure that research outcomes in science and technology play a vital role in shaping policies across critical sectors.  

The directive was issued during a courtesy visit by the President of the Nigerian Academy of Science (NAS) and its fellows to the State House in Abuja on Thursday. 

President Tinubu emphasized his administration’s commitment to a comprehensive approach that harnesses the innovative capacity of Nigerians across public and private sectors, including farming, manufacturing, information technology, and academia.  

He stressed the importance of integrating research outcomes into the policy formulation and implementation processes. 

During his investiture as the Grand Patron of Science by the Academy, the President highlighted the global challenges and the need for increased reliance on research for solutions, particularly in health and education.  

In response, the President of the Nigerian Academy of Science, Professor Ekanem Braide, expressed gratitude for President Tinubu’s support for a national research fund.
