The Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has pledged to revitalise all the businesses allegedly crippled by the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Muhammadu Buhari.
Divulging this during a statement delivered by the Director Media and Publicity, PDP Presidential Campaign Organization, Kola Ologbondiyan, disclosed that the Waziri of Adamawa vowed to create wealth and facilitate new SME venture Capital fund if elected president in the forthcoming February presidential election.
He believes that the strategic template will also revamp about 24 million businesses crippled by the Buhari Presidency and put millions of Nigerians, who had lost their jobs under the current administration, back to work.
He opines that the template is predicated on Atiku Abubakar’s staunch confidence in Nigerians as hard working people, with immense potentials to thrive in all fields of endeavor, given the right opportunity and conducive business environment.
Part of the initiative, as already laid out in Atiku Abubakar’s economy recovery plan, is to facilitate the establishment of a Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) Venture Capital Fund, which in collaboration with the private sector will provide longer-term capital for targeted small firms across the states of the federation in various sectors of our economy.
This initiative by Atiku Abubakar will attract a minimum of N90 billion ($250 million) of direct private sector funding for Nigerians in small and medium businesses with strategic windows for increased production and grin various sectors of the economy.
The PPCO therefore encouraged Nigerians to continue rallying with the PDP in our collective quest to use the February Presidential election to end the Buhari misrule and vote in Atiku Abubakar as the next President to return our nation to the path of national cohesion and economic prosperity
