The country’s number two citizen has a habit of visiting outstanding beneficiaries of the N-Power scheme whenever he is on a visit to states of the federation.
The scheme, we understand, is domiciled in his office.
Osinbajo was in Asaba for the 25th edition of Micro, Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (MSMEs) Clinic organised by the Delta State Government in collaboration with the Office of the Vice President.
Osinbajo commended Governor Ifeanyi Okowa’s administration for its commitment to growing MSMEs, noting that effort of the state government was in line with President Muhammadu Buhari’s resolve to make businesses work in Nigeria.
“The federal government is determined to create a Nigeria where small businesses are nurtured and encouraged to thrive and prosper.
“Nigeria is an economy driven largely by small businesses and it is clear that there can be no real national growth and development if we do not ensure that our small businesses are developed.
“If every small business in Nigeria add just one more employee, the gap that single action will fill in our unemployment figures will be much larger than if one single conglomerate were to employ 10,000 people.
“So, we really believe that the MSMEs are the engine of growth in our country and we are, therefore, fully committed to ensuring that as a government, we will remove all the obstacles that are standing in the way of the MSMEs so that they can have the opportunity to thrive and grow,” he said.
