' I will be the best minister ever ' says Ogbonaya Onu


Following President Buhari’s distribution of portfolio to his ministers yesterday 11, November Dr Onu Ogbonnaya who was sworn in as Minister of Science and Technology is aware of the expectations of the nation and has promised to strive to be the best of Buhari’s ministers.
Speaking at a reception organized for him by Concerned Ebonyi State Indigenes to celebrate his appointment, Dr Ogbonnaya promised to work tirelessly to emerge as the best minister Nigeria has ever seen.
He said: “One assurance that I will always give you and I have said it repeatedly, is that as your son, I will never do something that you will be ashamed of.
“It is better for me to leave politics than for me to do something for my own selfish interest that will make you to be ashamed of your son.
“I will continue to act in a way that Nigerians will know that Ebonyi State is truly the Salt of the Nation.
“I want to assure you that I will make sure that I will be the best minister Nigeria ever had,” he stated.
The former governor of old Abia, stressed that no nation had ever attained greatness without science and technology.
“I want you to go home with these words: no nation from the beginning of time has ever become great without embracing science and technology.
“The U.S. is the greatest power in the world; the largest economy, the strongest military and the U.S. has the highest diplomatic potential that she has used in the maintenance of peace all over the world.
“But the U.S. was able, is able and will continue to do so, so long as it is leading in science and technology,’’ the minister noted.
Dr Onu believes that Nigeria will be one of the 10 leading economies in no time but maintains “we cannot do it without science and technology.”
“Science and technology will take Nigeria to a height unimagined today. We will do our best to be the instruments that Nigeria will use to get to that height. And I need your prayers; I need your support.’’ He finished.
