Question and answer
what are the role of engineer in achieving vision 2020
For the 20-2020 vision for Nigeria to be a reality, the engineering profession has a pivotal role to play. [ The Nigerian engineers must be equipped with the relevant skills to be part of the boom that will come with the economic transformation of the country. In the next ten years, Nigeria will require to generate more electricity, build millions of housing units, develop massive road and rail transport systems, grow more food through mechanised agricultural systems, manufacture multifarious consumer goods locally, build and equip more hospitals and healthcare institutions, build and equip
more schools and specialised intermediate and tertiary institutions etc. Government must as part of the vision 20-2020 implementation process assess the manpower requirements for the envisaged growth and proceed to plan how to get them. My prayer is that a country endowed with such a large population as Nigeria, will not go the way of small countries like UAE, Qatar, etc and depend heavily on immigrant experts to grow their economy. Indigenous Qataris are less than 1 million while indigenous Nigerians number over 150 million. We have good examples from India and China to emulate. India spared no effort in ensuring that they developed their manpower locally to world standards. The top ten engineering colleges in India are respected worldwide and are known to admit only the brightest and the best, with this policy, the country has been able to lay a solid foundation for the growth that has been experienced there in the last 25 years. In fact, India exports manpower even to Europe and the Americas because of the quality of their engineering graduates in various disciplines. target=_blank rel='nofollow'>https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=cache:2APzFugYzToJ:' target=_blank rel='nofollow'>www.acen.org.ng/aceneventcenter/papers/6aInstitutionalFrameworkErnestNdukwe.pdf+what+are+the+role+of+engineer+in+achieving+vision+2020&hl=fil&gl=ph&pid=bl&srcid=ADGEESiO0J0LTZdPQVHc69LuV2aaDvVU2dLr_s6_XFc-qKjlPOOYGXyWhraFHyr3QnCHft1VFn3ZyjJ74RWUUYTKf4idzQyAl0WQL9v5alD7ZEruQJpIsCV9V2UR04oYDSE9J486To1l&sig=AHIEtbRrK1ZNcLJNz1t1U8gE77YvHbuMwg ]
