This, the agency said, would enhance Nigeria’s branded technology products toward stimulation of technology transfer, domestication, commercialization of indigenous socio-economic advancement.

The Executive Vice Chairman, Mr Khalil Halilu, said this while unveiling NASENI’s branded products at the agency’s quarterly media briefing in Abuja. 

These new products comprised of car batteries, laptops, smartphones and solar-powered street lights.

The agency, ITREALMS recalled had in February, launched three sets of branded products which included solar-powered irrigation systems, electric motorcycles and tricycles, and off-grid solar home systems.

In addition, Mr Halilu said, these feats were recorded in line with the agency’s 2023-2027 strategic launchpad to fit into the Renewed Hope Agenda of the present Bola Tinubu-led administration.

The launchpad, he said, was to enhance Nigeria’s manufacturing capacity, reduce the country’s import bill, and reposition the agency to leverage on the comparative advantage of the 36 states.

The NASENI boss said the agency was working assiduously to bring in more products to create a national brand that every Nigerian would love to see.

He said that the agency embarked upon its launchpad to improve the livelihood of Nigerians and foster national development.

“What we are trying to do is to open our doors to people that will contribute to our activities and development of our nation.

Mr Halilu said that the areas of focus of the strategic launchpad were agriculture and food manufacturing, defense and aerospace, sustainable transportation and mobility.

He said others included renewable energy and sustainability, health and biotechnology, information technology and software, construction and smart city.

NASENI boss also presented the agency’s proposal evaluation portal, a website for those who intend to work with the agency.
