Shettima to commission Ekiti MSMEs clinic next week – Oyebanji 

The Ekiti state governor, Mr. Biodun Oyebanji, Thursday, said the Ekiti Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) Clinic housing the Ekiti Garment Hub, would be due for commissioning next week by the vice president, Sen Kashim Shettima.

He described youth development and job creation as key pillars of his administration’s development agenda. 

Governor Oyebanji commended the President Tinubu-led federal government for his unwavering commitment and support for the development and empowerment of MSMEs across the country targeted at boosting job creation and youth empowerment. 

Governor Oyebanji gave the commendation while inspecting the project sited in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti state capital.

Speaking with journalists shortly after inspecting the project, the governor expressed his gratitude to the president for selecting Ekiti state as one of the few states to benefit from this phase of the federal government MSMEs support programme.

Highlighting the economic impact of the growth of MSMEs on the development of the state and the nation’s economy, the governor said the MSME clinic, which is a fashion and garment hub, would train Ekiti indigenes in fashion designing, create more jobs and also improve the living condition of the residents.

He said the hub would also serve as a catalyst for entrepreneur, providing necessary training and resources for individuals to start their businesses, achieve financial independence and stimulate economic growth of the state.

Expressing optimism about the future of Nigeria given the current administration’s proactive stance on economic and citizen welfare, the governor said the president’s continue emphasis on MSMEs and other citizen-focused policies will not only enhance economic resilient but also ensure a better and quality life for all Nigerians.

“This is a project that the federal government is undertaking in Ekiti state in collaboration with the state government and we are grateful to the president for choosing Ekiti state as one of the few states that will benefit from this phase of the program and it is consonance with our promise to our people. You understand that job creation and youth development is one of the pillars of which we campaigned and so, this hub will train Ekiti indigenes in fashion design create job for them and it will also lead to the improvement in their living condition.

“From this place, life will be changed, and people will come in and learn skills that they can use to develop themselves going forward,” the governor said.
