of Small and Medium
Enterprises, (NASME), said this
in an interview with newsmen
in Lagos on Tuesday.

He noted
that extending the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Anchor
Borrower’s schemes on
agriculture would generate
the projected jobs.

“The
schemes should be extended
to all states of the country and will lead to more jobs being
created, especially in the
hinterland.

“The CBN anchor
schemes must intervene in
states according to their
comparative advantages in various agricultural produce,
which are their strength,
” he
said. The entrepreneur noted
that improving the ease of
doing business by the
government would open up the construction sector of the
economy.

“Government
should improve on the
conditions and make it easier
to get working permit to
enable the sector to create new jobs.
“As for carrying
out the right reforms, it will
enable the sector to be one of
the largest sectors with
enormous job opportunities,
” he said.
He said that government must improve on
the conditions of doing
businesses in the country in
order for the service sector to
create jobs.

“Government
must strive to make the business conditions better by
eliminating double taxation on
fledgling businesses.

“The
issues of infrastructure
development such as unstable
power supplies should be addressed permanently, ” he
said.

He noted that the
government should create
more jobs by concessioning
most of the transportation
sector for the private sector to manage them.

The Federal
Government recently unveiled
plans to create 20 million jobs
in the country, through
agriculture, constructions,
transportation and the service sectors in the next four years.
