Be ready to work, new STI minister Nnaji tells staff



Mr Uche Nnaji, newly sworn in Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) on Monday, told staffers of the Ministry to be ready to work outside official working hours.

The minister said this when he was welcomed at the ministry after the inauguration.

Nnaji said that the scope of the ministry had expanded with the inclusion of innovation, adding that it was no longer business as usual.

He said the mandate of the ministry permeated every other ministry; hence it was no longer going to be the normal work routine.

The minister said there were numerous advantages the government stood to benefit from the ministry as innovation was part and parcel of the ministry.

Nnaji called for collaborative efforts in order to move the ministry forward.

He also adjourned the official interactive session till Tuesday.
