  1. In the overall context of industrial development of Nigeria, the Federal Ministry of Industry Trade and Investment plays a pivotal role. How do we marry the role of the Ministry with the development of the petroleum industry. At the moment the FMITI, is promoting the creation of specialised industrial cluster for the petrochemicals industry. This is significantly hampered by the crosspurpose which exists between the role of the Ministry and the Ministry of Petroleum Resources.
