MSME CLINIC IN ONDO


This Thursday, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo will visit Ondo State for the inauguration of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, MSME, clinic in Akure, the state capital.

According to the Special Adviser to the Governor on Public and Inter-Governmental Affairs, Mrs. Olubunmi Ademosu, "The Akeredolu administration has always prioritised the people as a key point of his administration as all programmes that we have carried out have been evenly implemented.
"We have also ensured that political influence is avoided with the commitment to facilitate a sense of belonging to residents. Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Clinic will never be an exemption." 
Ademosu said the required structures and processes that would ensure the success of the programme have already been put in place. According to her, that the state is targeting about 10,000 beneficiaries.
She reinstated that, “owners of micro, small and medium enterprises are expected to focus on capacity building before accessing the most appropriate financial facility.
"This is why you have businesses that open and shut down in less than few months of establishment. Access to finance for at least five years is the right structure for these businesses and government is already working towards addressing that with the establishment of the Development Bank of Nigeria, DBN."

She explained that agencies like NAFDAC, Corporate Affairs Commission, CAC, Standards Organization of Nigeria, SON, Bank of Industry, BoI, Federal
Inland Revenue Service, FIRS, and others serve as facilitators of businesses and not obstacles to business development in the country.

Also speaking was the Ondo State Commissioner for Commerce and Industry, Timehin Adelegbe, who said the implementation of the programme is timely. "It is coming at a period that the Akeredolu administration is intensifying
efforts to create an enabling and conducive environment for small scale businessmen in the state," he said.

The programme would kick off on Wednesday, while the Vice President is expected in the state on Thursday for the inauguration.
Ademosu is quite certain that the programme would effectively
raise a new set of entrepreneurs, while the existing ones would be guided on the best steps to take to add value to their efforts. This, she said, will in turn compliment the efforts of the federal
government in achieving an industrialised society.

MSME Clinic is an initiative of the office of the Vice President in partnership with the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment, as well as 11 other federal agencies.

The special adviser explained that the idea of the MSME Clinic is part of the efforts of the present administration to close the gap between enterprises and relevant government agencies.

DEONTAY WILDER AND ANTHONY JOSHUA, COULD THIS BE IT?

"Wilder is going to be getting a contract from us ASAP," Hearn said. "It's obviously the fight we want. There is a lot of sorting out to do for this fight, but great news that in principle he seems to be on board for the idea of coming to the UK for the fight. We're going to be dealing with it and we're going to be making sure he gets the relevant paperwork."

Wilder tweeted : "The $50M offer for him to fight me next in the U.S. is still available. Today I even agreed to their offer to fight Joshua next in the UK. If he prefers the fight in the UK, the ball is in their court. It's up to them to choose."


Not long after, we got a picture from Joshua on twitter with the caption "getting ready to rumble". Everybody assumes he is talking about the proposed fight that will turn reality soon.

Wilder's co-manager Shelly Finkel fed us some juicy bits, "We have agreed to the terms that Eddie has put out to us for a fight in the U.…
