Osinbajo leads 25 agencies to engage 1500 Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises in Delta

Vice President Yemi Osibanjo is leading 25 agencies to the two-day business clinic for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) holding on Wednesday 6th  and Thursday 7th Nov 2019 in Asaba, Delta State with over 1,500 participants.

The Chief Economic Adviser to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, Kingsley Emu, who dropped the hint on Tuesday during a press briefing in Asaba, said the agencies include those involved in facilitating the ease of doing business and development finance institutions such as Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Standards Organization of Nigeria (SON), Bank of Industry (BoI) with an array of products on display.

He added that over 95 per cent of businesses in Nigeria were MSMEs, “so the clinic has become imperative to significantly address challenges of access to finance and institutions for the budding entrepreneurs.

Our expectation is that Osinbajo presence will match the expectations of MSMEs especially as it requires funding, certification, accountability and documentation.”
