“Technology is a key driver of any economy.

The NDDC Chairman made these statements when the Pro Chancellor and Chairman of the Governing Council of the Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO) Professor John Omini Offem led a delegation of the 11th Governing Council of the University on a courtesy visit at his Office in Abuja recently.

Speaking, Prof Offem stated that FUTO is one of the Specialized Universities established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in 1980 to produce skilled manpower with strong Technological base to facilitate development of the country.
The University has grown to become a leading supplier of skilled manpower to the Nigerian labor market especially in the oil and gas, transportation and telecommunications as well as information technology sectors of the economy.

The Pro Chancellor who was accompanied by the Vice a Chancellor, Professor F.C Eze, a Member of the Governing Board, Mrs Maureen Omokhamion, and the Registrar, Mr John Nnabuihe. They solicited the support of NDDC in undertaking various infrastructural Projects particularly the construction of Perimeter fencing to secure the University from encroachment by their neighboring Communities, illegal entry and other activities by undesirable elements.

Responding, the Chairman of NDDC congratulated the Pro Chancellor and Members of his Council on their appointment into the Governing Board of FUTO while commending the University for producing well trained graduates who are doing very well in their various professional fields. He further stated that;

Oil is a finite resource which might either dry up someday or made irrelevant by technology.
We must therefore begin to look at an economy outside oil” he emphasized.

In a Press release issued by the Special Assistant Communication,Clara Braide, Ndoma – Egba further assured the delegation of the commitment of NDDC Board and Management to change the economic fortunes of the Region by undertaking youth oriented projects that would create jobs for the people of the Region.

He intimated them on the plans of the commission to ring the Region with Fibre Optics which would provide internet penetration and access across the entire Niger Delta Region stating that;

“Internet connectivity is a catalyst to development.
Bill Gates, Zuckerberg founder of Facebook, and Steve Jobs are very good examples of youths who never had formal education, but through technology and creativity have made a huge difference in the world. “He further stated that;

“Similar creative and innovative minds that could drive technology could also be found in Abia, IMO and indeed other parts of the Region “he added.

He expressed the willingness of the Commission to collaborate with FUTO to jump start the process of adding more value to all Universities in the Region and the Academic Community.
