“The organised private sector is shrinking. Most of these big companies are closing down due to dilapidated infrastructure, poor road networks and power supply, epileptic network, so our hope of employing thousands of unemployed youths is through the MSMEs, as the largest employer of labour, so in whatsoever capacity building/assistance they can give to Nigerian companies so they can increase their capacity and employ more people, they should do,* he implored.
