According to him ”from experience, the NDE believes that N20,000 can make a turnaround if seriously utilized in the establishment of micro ventures.”

”The Micro-Enterprise Enhancement Scheme which is an integral part of Small Scale Enterprises of NDE has been anchoring this scheme over the years and a greater number of unemployed had been empowered and created a wealth of no small measure.

“It is expected that this loan is paid back to enable others in the waiting to benefit.

”It is so to say that it is a revolving loan which captured a lot of budding entrepreneurs,” he said.

Fikpo noted that the ” NDE is still pursuing vigorously its onerous task of creating and generating jobs for unemployed Nigerians.

” In Ondo state alone, virtually every community has taken a dose of NDE programmes and schemes. In fact, NDE has been seen as the largest job creator and the hope of the masses.

“The DG has, therefore, advised the beneficiaries to avail themselves of the rare opportunity and make judicious use of the loans.”
