Recession: FG tasks Nigerians to embrace alternatives


The federal government has urged Nigerians to exploit the current economic challenges facing the country by embracing small and medium scales enterprises (SMEs) as part of measures to diversify the nation’s economy.

The director and head, Policy Advocacy and Coordination, at the Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency of Nigeria (SMEDAN), Ewans Monday, gave the advice in Abuja at a one-day seminar on promotion of small and medium scale enterprises organized by the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA) Alumni Association of Nigeria (JAAN).

Monday said the time has come for Nigerians to take action on how to earn income on their own without waiting for government.
