The Federal Government of Nigeria has announced a landmark initiative to send its first citizen into space.

This pioneering effort was disclosed by Dr Mathew Adepoju, Director General of the National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA), during a press conference held in Abuja.

Dr Adepoju revealed that Nigeria has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Space Exploration and Research Agency (SERA) to facilitate this ambitious project.

He emphasised that this collaboration signifies a major milestone in Nigeria's 25th anniversary of space exploration, positioning the nation among countries actively engaged in human spaceflight.

“This initiative opens up new avenues for scientific research and technological advancement,” Dr. Adepoju remarked.

He highlighted the potential of this endeavour to foster technological progress and ignite interest in STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) among Nigerian youth.
