Use the Sovereign Wealth Fund to build the country’s intellectual capacity- Engr Mokuolu

The President of the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE), Engr Adekunle Mokuolu has urged the Federal Government to use the Sovereign Wealth Fund to build the country’s intellectual capacity.

President of the NSE Kunle Mokuolu said this recent, just as he commended the President Muhammadu Buhari government for its infrastructural development drive.

Mokuolu however called on the government to “pay more attention to Nigerian content in the delivery of this infrastructure. If we are spending our Sovereign Wealth Fund, then we should be spending it for the sole benefit of Nigerians and for building of intellectual capacity.

“The most important thing is the intellectual capacity of those projects and not the physical ones that somebody can carry one bag of cement. Although we need people to carry the cement, we also need people to design the different infrastructure that will be for our domestic use.
