It is regrettable that over 40 years after independence, Nigeria still depend largely on foreign nations for her various technological and industrial needs. Its development is still grossly low in terms technological productivity.

The erudite scholar attributed the causes of technological backwardness in Nigeria to discouragement of indigenous technological growth by the colonial masters, non-implementation of Nigeria’s industrial policies after independence, government attitude and poor state of educational institutions.
He also suggested the safe-copying of items already in the market, genuine encouragement of made- in- Nigeria goods by government, bringing corruption and politicization of the power sector to an end and the encouragement of the development of appropriate indigenous technology and good leadership as remedies.
