The National Directorate of Employment (NDE) in Ogun State has trained 30 graduates in the Environmental Entrepreneurship Development Program to equip them with business management skills for self-reliance.
Speaking at the launch of the four-day basic business training, Managing Director Mallam Abubakar Nuhu Fikpo said that despite all the potential of informal sector operators, actualizing their full impact cannot have an impact only when their businesses succeed. .
Represented by Ogun State Coordinator, Alao Babatunde, the DG said the company can be successful if it is able to handle the technical and managerial aspects of its business hence training.
“30 graduates from tertiary institutions who have undergone training under the environmental development program prenurship have been selected for basic business training to equip them with business management skills.
“Most of the developed countries of the world have achieved economic prosperity not through the large corporations that existed, but through the encouragement of small businesses in the informal sector which provide employment for the majority of their population.
“It is for this reason that NDE encourages the creation of small businesses that have the potential to become large entities depending on the commitment of business owners,” he added.
