The vice president explained that the National Micro and Medium Enterprises scheme is a scheme that is designed to develop the business of petty traders in the country which can alleviate the level of poverty in the country.

“We give petty traders N10,000, when they pay back we increase it to N20,000.

“This is a very good program which is designed to help hard-working citizens of this country. They should be able to have support from the government no matter how little it is,” he said.
