The Biotechnology Society of Nigeria (BSN) and Contech Global, Nigerian innovative technology solution providers, have provided a knowledge-based platform that could boost Nigeria’s economy using bio-solutions.
Riding on the high-level commitments made so far by Contec Global through its agriculture subsidiary, Contec Agro Ltd (CGAL), the BSN has offered to partner with the firm to increase the knowledge and application of Science and Technology Innovations (STIs) for food security in Nigeria.
Speaking when representatives of the society visited the Abuja facility of CGAL, Prof. Benjamin Ewa Ubi, President, BSN, said: “We thank you for your innovative technologies for a bio-based economy. We look forward to building partnerships to upscale STIs in Nigeria.”
Buttressing this, Chairman, Board of Trustees (BoT), BSN, who is also the Vice Chancellor of Taraba State University, Jalingo, Prof. Vincent Tenebe, described the visit to CGAL’s facility in Abuja as a very important one, as it afforded them the opportunity of furthering the collaboration with CGAL.
