Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo

Vice President Prof Yemi Osinbajo has reinstated the commitment of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s led administration to support the Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (SMEs) in Abia and other states of the federation to grow the country’s economy. He stated this while flagging off the Nationwide Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise Clinics for Viable Enterprises (MSME) in Aba, the commercial hub of Abia State.

The vice president who described the SMEs as the highest employers of labour and engine house of every great nation’s economy, said President Buhari has great interest in the growth of the SMEs and stressed that it is the intention of the administration to make the industry compete favourably and even surpass their counterparts at the global stage.

He said the essence of visiting Aba, Kano, Nnewi, Onitsha and any other parts of the country is to interact with the people, identify their problems and as well finding a lasting way to tackle some of the challenges that are hindering them from performing optimally.
