Osinbajo Sees The Future Of Nigeria's Economy
Seeing a blossoming economy, where the inflation rate is pegged at single digits, will delight Nigerians.
The Acting President Yemi Osinbajo is already seeing this economy and believes the Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (MSMEs) hold the key to this dreamland.
He has an assurance for Nigerians.
"The business of making our country truly great is not just the business of the government. Government is transient, it passes away, but it is the business of every one of us."
"I can assure you that whatever it takes to make our country truly where it should be in the comity of nations in Africa and anywhere in the world, we will give it."
Professor Osinbajo was speaking at the launch of the MSMEs Clinics held at the Eagle Square, in Nigeria’s capital city, Abuja on Thursday.
At the venue, some MSMEs showcased their products and the Acting President said the government organised the clinic because it has a key role to play in creating an environment for businesses to prosper.
"This is exactly why we are here. The idea came out of conversations I had with Mr President about how we could develop small businesses quickly.
“We recognise that one of the chief problems that small businesses have is with regulatory agencies; being able to access regulatory agencies and get quick and efficient service from regulatory agencies,” he said.
Small businesses also got the Acting President's assurance that the government had strategies to create easier access to funds.
“I want to just say that the Federal Government is committed to MSMEs and to developing MSMEs.
“So, we are going to work very hard to ensure that we don’t just do exhibitions and come round to places like this and see what you are doing, but we are going to follow up.
“We are going to see that those who require funding, those who have the talents, those who have the creativity, are funded.
He, however, highlighted that the business of making Nigeria great requires that all Nigerians must support the government's policies.
