He added it would further demonstrate that the administration considered human capital development very important.

According to him, apart from the giant strides in physical infrastructure, “we are now shifting to the human capital development in the state”.

The commissioner gave the assurance that the funds would be distributed fairly to operators of small and medium scale businesses, to achieve the purpose.
