Temitola Adekunle-Johnson, Senior Special Assistant on Job Creation and MSMEs, announced this saying that distinguished entrepreneurs will be rewarded with houses, cars, and cash prizes during the 2024 MSMEs Week celebrations.

The federal government created a national MSME clinic to offer a platform for businesses to showcase their products, secure investments, and improve in critical areas such as funding, skill development, infrastructure, market access, and technology.
