Following the recent launch of three new products in the Nigerian market, the National Agency Science and Engineering Infrastructure says the agency has continued to receive orders from interested dealers and the general public.

ConsumerConnect had reported Mr. Khalil Suleiman Halilu, Executive Vice-Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (EVC/CEO), Thursday, May 9, 2024, had unveiled a set of new NASENI products, developed in collaboration with technical partners during a media briefing at the Agency’s headquarters in Abuja, FCT.

Halilu had presented products, including NASENI 300 Watts LED Solar Street Lamp; NASENI Laptop, NASENI Lithium battery, NASENI solar irrigation pumps, and a NASENI Smartphone.

Mr. Olusegun Ayeoyenikan, Director of Information at NASENI, in a statement issued Friday, May 10, said since the media briefing, the agency had received much interest from prospective dealers and the general public on the availability of the products.

The agency stated: The agency would like to inform the general public that all enquiries about bulk orders for the NASENI laptop, and the NASENI solar irrigation pump; and pre-orders for all the other products, should be e-mailed to: sales@naseni.gov.ng.

Ayeoyenikan also noted since assuming office as the EVC/CEO of NASENI, Halilu has stressed the agency’s commitment to collaborating with private sector partners to bring high-quality household and industrial products to the market.

According to him, the new product resulted from NASENI’s technical expertise, and unparalleled ability to assist private sector players to unlock new markets across the country and abroad.

The EVC/CEO stated: “Our new model at NASENI is to do everything to conserve resources, avoid duplication of effort, and shorten go-to-market time. “What this means is that whenever we find serious partners who are already operating in our areas of interest, we will work with and support them to improve their products and take these products to the market.”

Halilu also said: “As a government agency, we are not out to compete with the private sector. Instead, we are here as partners and enablers, helping with everything from design, to testing, to helping scale up production capacity, and seeking out new markets.”

NASENI noted its vision to ensure that its domestic product manufacturing initiatives will transition from “Semi-Knocked Down” (SKD) assembly, to “Completely Knocked Down” (CKD) assembly.

Besides, there will be a concerted effort to increase the input of locally-sourced materials in all product components, it stated.

NASENI further assured Nigerians, that it would ensure the full transfer of all required Intellectual Property (IP) and technology elements and licensing.

The statement noted NASENI as well pledged to continue keeping the public updated on the progress of this transformational industrial journey, which is a direct manifestation of the agency’s three core operating principles of Collaboration, Creation and Commercialisation.

Halilu stated: “As the only purpose-built agency of the Federal Government of Nigeria with a technology transfer mandate, NASENI will always focus on progressively scaling-up local-content sourcing, and strengthening domestic technical and production capacity.”
