4 “For development purposes, even if the federal government wants to carry out any project anywhere, the cooperation and support of the state government will be required,” he said.

5 The minister stressed the importance of such cooperation, adding that working together would speed up and bring development to the states at a higher rate.

6 He said that the federal government only had land in Abuja, hence the need for cooperation.

7 He also told the governor about the need to move the economy away from commodities and towards knowledge and innovation.

13 “When I resumed work in 2015, the biotech projects were going great until #EndSARS protesters descended on the projects and tore down everything that was very well done.

14 “They made everything practically useless and the Jalingo-based tech machines helped us in many ways as they benefited us tremendously,” he said.

15 Ishaku said that the state government’s efforts alone would not be enough and called for collaboration between the ministry and the state.
