The product was presented to him by the Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Otunba Niyi Adebayo, just before the commencement of the week’s Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Wednesday.

Introducing the product to the President, Adebayo said it was produced by the Electrical/Electronics Technology Department of the Industrial Training Fund’s (ITF) Model Skills Training Centre, using locally sourced components.

Also before the start of the FEC meeting, Buhari also presided over the swearing-in ceremony of a Commissioner each for the National Population Commission (NPC) and the Federal Civil Service Commission (FCSC).

Those sworn-in were Wakil Bukar as Commissioner of the Federal Civil Service Commission (FCC) and Mohammed Dattijo Usman as Commissioner of the National Population Commission (NPC).
