In a recent release by his Special Assistant (Media & Communication), Mr. Johannes Oluwatobi Wojuola, the Executive Chairman of the FIRS, Mr. Muhammad Nami has stated that one key way Nigeria can unlock her massive economic potentials is by setting up entrepreneurship and industrialization hubs across her states. The tax boss stated this in his Independence Day goodwill message to Nigerians.
Mr. Nami cited Ondo’s Entrepreneurship Village as an example of what he meant. The Entrepreneurship Village in Akure, Ondo State, was set up by Africa’s Young Entrepreneurs (A.Y.E), the largest entrepreneurship network in Africa, to unite, encourage and empower entrepreneurs in Africa. Mr. Nami urged other States to invest in setting up similar models.
In his remarks, Mr. Nami stated that, “Nigeria is a country with limitless potentials. We are a resilient and talented people, and what these young Nigerians need is the enabling environment to thrive.” Mr. Nami noted that, “A good place to start is the setting up of Entrepreneurship and Industrial Hubs across every State in the country. This would set off a chain-reaction that would turn around the fortunes of the country, and tap into the potentials of our vast young and dexterous population.”
The tax boss stressed that this model would also help address issues of unemployment and insecurity, as young people would be taken off the streets and put into productive activities. The model also offers massive economic prospects, as jobs would be created, lives would be changed and unprecedented economic activities would be sparked across the books and crannies of the country. “Nigeria has what it takes to lead the world, and this is one way to go”, Mr. Nami maintained.
