Call to cultivate the talent in the continent

Writing for Daily Sun of Nigeria, Fidel Odum reports of a number of achievers from that Country who have made some great inventions- notably a recent invention by Dr. Louis Obyo Obyo Nelson of a drug for the treatment of diabetes.

The writer notes that “what is of utmost significance in Dr. Nelson’s invention is that it is a cure and not just another control drug for diabetes” and that a complete remission of the disease was reported in all the tested persons.

It is reported that the United States Patent Office has granted a patent for this invention and a partnership between a Nigerian Company and an American pharmaceutical company will soon have the drug marketed worldwide.

The piece also cites other Nigerians making great scientific strides locally and abroad noting that there is need celebrate and cultivate more seriously the talent in the continent.
