The Energy Minister also urged Africans studying outside to make it a topmost priority to go back to their homelands and make changes with knowledge received.

He said, “one thing that I always say is that we need the human capital and in most African countries human capital resides outside Africa. We need to bring our diasporans with the technology and the skill that they have attracted to add value to what we are doing in Africa.

“I don’t remember a continent that developed in the last fifty years without its diasporans coming back. India, Japan, South Korea. They went got trained, got educated and came back home to help in the struggle and emancipation of their countries. That is what we are lacking.”

He also added that; “It’s not because we lack incentives for investors, it’s not because we haven’t got natural resources. We have more natural resources than any continent. What is lacking is the human capital, human endowment, the human capacity to add to what we have to take us to where we want to go.”
