Abuja- Members of the newly-inaugurated boards of the National Office of Technology Acquisition and Promotion (NOTAP) and the Nigerian Institute of Science Laboratory Technology (NISLT) have been advised to adopt the principles of integrity, accountability and transparency in the discharge of their responsibilities for national interest.

The Supervising Minister of the Ministry of Science and Technology, Omobola Johnson, gave advice at the formal inauguration of the Governing Boards of the two agencies at the Sheraton Hotels and Towers in Abuja.

She charged them to provide policy guidelines for the operations of the agencies to enable them render technology-related services to investors, innovators, entrepreneurs, researchers and industrialists.

She described members of the Governing Boards as people with proven integrity, unwavering patriotism and uncommon sense of duty.

Johnson tasked them to bring these worthy attributes to bear on their mandates as enshrined in the Acts establishing their agencies.

She requested the inaugurated boards to consolidate on their achievements by taking the agencies to the next level, which according to her, would require total commitment and diligence in the highest order. Chairperson of the Board of NOTAP, Shuaibu Jimeta, who spoke on behalf of the two inaugurated Governing Boards, pledged their readiness to render selfless service and ensure that the Transformation Agenda of the present administration became a reality.
