With this done Nigeria will start producing solvers, team workers, and innovative researchers and enhance creativity skills to solve prevailing challenges, he said.

According to the Minister, the administration of the President Muhammadu Buhari has achieved a very high level of self-reliance in food security and food safety.

In his word "Many agencies under the supervision of the Ministry know the importance of food security and safety, because their interest is to grow food crops, harvest and efficiently store and process them in a way that even when it is off season, food will be available."

According to Onu, the key mandate of the Ministry is to support all forms of research innovations anywhere and at any level in the country.
