Sharing is caring!

The Minister of Innovation, Science, and Technology, Mr Uche Nnaji, says Nigerian welders need training and International Organisation for Standardisation certification in order to boost manpower for socio-economic development.

Mr. Nnaji stated this at the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding between the National Centre for Technology Management, academia, the private sector, and industry players for vocational skills certification in Abuja.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that ISO certification entails that a management system, manufacturing process, service, or documentation procedure has all the requirements for standardisation and quality assurance.

The minister, who expressed regret that the country was lacking in certified artisans and manpower, said the Federal Government, through the Nigeria Welding Institute, would set up training hubs in the six geopolitical zones of the country to train welders and issue them with ISO certificates.

He assured all that with the ISO certification, Nigerian welders would be fortified to be gainfully and professionally employed within and outside the country.
