The Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo has stated that Standards Organisation of Nigeria, National Agency for Foods, Drugs Administration Control, Corporate Affairs Commission and Bank of Industry are crucial to the implementation of the Executive Order on the Ease of Doing Business in the country.
He made the statement at the Mega Nationwide Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) clinic held at the Eagle Square Abuja .
According to Osinbajo, the agencies are major feature of the MSMEs clinic, which is going round the states in a bid to interact with the operators and try to solve their problems.
Osibanjo called on both Federal and state governments to patronise made in Nigeria goods, stressing that the country is at a stage where it needs to be self-reliant. He said this can only be achieved by patronizing made in Nigeria goods.
He reiterated the commitment of the Federal Government to boosting the activities of MSMEs as the driving force behind the Made in Nigeria revolution.
Osibanjo stressed that the future of Nigeria is in the hands of small businesses, which are doing great things.
The task for the government, according to the Acting president, is to play its role of creating the enabling environment by developing and funding MSMEs through the intervention of relevant government agencies.
“Currently, we are taking the agencies to the MSMEs instead of the other way round so as to know their problems and help proffer practicable solutions to them.” he said.
