A Fellow of the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE), Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu has urged governments in Nigerian to avail themselves of the services provided by indigenous engineers rather than wasting scarce resources on foreign artisans often overrated as engineers.

Iwuanyanwu who stated this at the 2018 Engineer Iwuanyanwu Annual Lecture Series held in Imo State recently affirmed that the country has an array of brilliant professionals in the engineering field that can hold their heads high if given opportunity to do so.

Wondering why the preference for foreigners’ has permeated all levels of governance in the country, Engr. Iwuanyanwu said local engineers are well trained, saying it has become absurd for professionals to search for white-collar jobs having been trained in all aspects of the profession.

To encourage the study of engineering and Mathematics, Engr. Iwuanyanwu announced the institution of an award to best graduating engineering and mathematics students from some tertiary institutions across the six geopolitical zones of the country.

Guest lecturer and Dean, computer and Information Technology, Federal University of Technology, Owerri (FUTO), Professor Engr. Gloria Chukwudebe corroborated Iwuanyanwu’s position, saying that Nigerian Engineers have all it takes to re-engineer the nation’s economy to achieve sustainable developments in the country in various spheres of economic development.

In a paper titled: “Re-engineering the Nigerian Economy To Fast Track Achieving Sustainable Development Goals,” Prof. Chukwudebe defined re-engineering as changing the approach to the way things are done, saying that it will transform business processes to achieve higher efficiency and productivity.

“It requires a paradigm shift from the way work is presently done in offices so that its principles, concepts, notions and general philosophy should become part of our everyday activities and curricula at all levels,” she said.

She attributed the failure of public businesses and offices to the challenge of ineffective monitoring and control of tasks and targets. She advocated for robust monitoring and evaluation framework that tracks progress, identifies areas of concern as well as supervises financial resources allocated to the set priorities and assesses the overall impact of key policies.

The President of NSE, Engr. Adekunle Mokuolu lauded Engr. Iwuanyanwu’s commitment to the growth of the profession and development of Nigeria, saying he remains the guiding light of the engineering profession and advocate of the Nigerian content development.

Speaking in the same vein, the Owerri Branch Chairman of NSE, Engr. Luke Uzoigwe said the development of Nigeria rests on locally trained professionals, saying that no foreigners can chat such path for the country.
