In a dedicated effort to strengthen Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) across the nation, the Federal Government has officially unveiled the Expanded National MSME Clinics. The maiden edition of the program held in Makurdi, Benue State on January 9, 2024, with a special focus on the thriving MSME sector in the state.
Speaking at the event, Vice-President Kashim Shettima reaffirmed the government’s commitment to promoting a thriving MSME environment in the country. He also revealed plans to establish a world-class fashion hub in Makurdi, which would support the growing fashion cluster in Benue.
In a joint effort, the Bank of Industry (BoI) and the Benue State government launched a N2 billion MSME development fund in 2016 to enhance the entrepreneurial capacity of citizens. This fund represents a shared commitment to drive business growth and development.
