Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said that the federal government is committed to helping businesses in Nigeria grow.
Osinbajo said this on Wednesday in Bauchi at the launch of the Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) Clinics.
In addition, he launched the federal government’s Trader Moni Scheme and commissioned the One-Stop Shop for MSMEs in Bauchi and environs.
He also noted that the President Muhammadu Buhari government is committed to making sure that the country’s wealth is used for the right things.
“Our focus from the beginning of the administration is that there must be jobs, enough resources for young men and women to be able to do their work and to contribute their quota to Nigeria’s growth,” Osinbajo noted.
“That is why the President started the N-Power programme, the Market Moni programme and TraderMoni; that is the reason why the President said that we must have Home-Grown School Feeding programme, to provide opportunities for people.
“President Muhammadu Buhari’s commitment to Nigeria is that he will not steal Nigeria’s resources, he will use Nigeria’s money for the benefit of Nigerians, that is the pledge he made the day he became President and he has maintained that pledge till now.
“The determination of our government is to see to it that Nigeria’s resources are used for the benefit of Nigerians.”
Similarly, he said “this country can afford to provide for our people that is why we are determined and committed by making sure that we provide for our people everywhere they are, especially the young men and women.
“For the first time in the history of Nigeria, we are spending 30% of our income on infrastructure.
“That is why we are able to build the Lagos-Kano railway, the Mambila Hydro project and all of the several roads that we have started building.
“We are spending Nigeria’s money in the right places and we make sure that nobody steals Nigeria’s money.”
