Raw Materials Development, Machinery and Manufacturing in Nigeria

Authors : O.P. Folorunso

Abstract: Materials have always been closely associated with human progress. This is because the human species make things like clothing, tools, homes, weapons, vehicles, electronic device, etc and of course, all these products must be made out of the appropriate materials with the required properties in the specified shapes and often with a desired appearance. This study is therefore focusing attention on development, machinery and manufacturing of raw materials to make aforementioned things, this paper also assessed the performance of relevant agencies towards raw materials development and establishing national standard coupled with other activities aimed at reducing the nations over reliance on imported materials. Finally, the study set out primary functions of research centers with sole aim of achieving a development of raw materials to reduce the use of imported materials based on a well articulated material programme on material production and supply.
