The newly appointed Executive Vice Chairman/CEO of the National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI), Khalil Halilu, has asked the management team to be fully committed to realising the objectives of the agency.
Halilu made the call while receiving operational briefings from the agency’s management and senior staff.
He emphasised that under his watch, NASENI will run an open-door system that welcomes ideas and suggestions.
“We will learn from all mistakes of the past, and make adjustments that will be included in our strategic plans for the future.
“We are not here to witch-hunt anyone, or live in the past,” he stated.
During his inaugural management meeting upon assumption of office recently, Halilu asked for the preparation of detailed briefing notes for presentation by management team and senior staff.
The briefings, which have now commenced, will be followed by a tour of NASENI institutes and facilities around the country, in the weeks ahead.
Halilu was appointed as the Executive Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of NASENI by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on September 2, 2023.
On assumption of office, he listed his priorities to include ensuring that NASENI plays a central role in ensuring technology transfer to Nigeria from around the world, as well as achieving successful commercialization of NASENI’s research and innovation.
