Akwa Ibom commissioner unveils support for budding businesses
Keying into the entrepreneurial development vision of Governor Udom Emmanuel, the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Ini Ememobong, has set aside N4 million to boost budding business enterprises in the state.
The commissioner, who made this known on his Facebook post on Tuesday, said the gesture would commemorate his 39th birthday anniversary on Monday, November 7.
“November is here again. As usual, it will be defined by giving. This year’s focus will be on enterprise development and church support. Those, who think they meet the criteria, should please apply.
“A team of seasoned business people will sit as a panel to choose the beneficiaries, who will be announced on the evening of November 6, while the presentation of the grant will hold on November 7 (my birthday). The identity of the panel will be revealed alongside the announcement of the winners,” Ememobong said.
He urged budding businesses in the state to seize the opportunity to expand their enterprises by making video clips of their businesses, giving details of how N100,000.00 can enhance their business and post it on the comment section of the Comrade Ini Ememobong’s Facebook post which serves as entry into the competition.
