Dr Osaheni Iyayi, a renowned industrialist on Tuesday, charged the Nigerian government to mobilise local entrepreneurs to Industrialise the economy in order to attain greatness.
Iyayi made the call at a press briefing on the book he authored titled; “ABC of How to Industrialise Nigeria”.
He noted that industrialisation remains a viable way to develop the Country amidst the prevailing economic challenges.
“I believe that Nigeria will succeed, because the success of Nigeria will usher in the development of the black race.
“Up till now, the black race is not contributing anything to the development of mankind; I say that with the full emphasis it deserves.
“We can delude ourselves, but the fact remains that without the industrialised efforts of the developed world, the black race would have remained in the dark.
“The good things about it is that we are not helpless. If we remain focus and we are able to identify our vision, we can develop this country within a very short spell,” he said.
