THE Atiku Business Support Group, ABSG, yesterday, assured Nigerians and the business community that the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has the best plan for the private sector and the Nigerian economy following his presentation at the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry, LCCI.
The group said the PDP candidate has workable solutions in revamping the nation’s economy focusing on deliberate action to strengthen the MSMEs and other small-medium scale businesses while addressing key national economic issues.
The group, in a statement by its interim Publicity Secretary, Oluniyi Isamotu, re-echoed the PDP Presidential candidate’s statement while meeting with the LCCI in a strategic open business meeting recently where he presented his economic blueprint for the country.
The group noted that Abubakar’s promise to create an Economic Stimulus Fund with an initial investment capacity of approximately $10 billion to support MSMEs across all the economic sectors is a game changer as MSMEs offer the greatest opportunities for achieving inclusive growth.
The group stated: “With all these being said, it is clear that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has the best workable plans for the private sector in the country. And this is a clarion call to all business owners in the country, entrepreneurs and investors to be part of this project and the candidature of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar for the benefit of their businesses and investments in the long run.
“We call on business leaders in Nigeria, we call on leaders of Chambers of Commerce to rise and embrace Atiku Abubakar as the next president of Nigeria.”
