By Anny MICHAELS
Distinguished Senator Bassey Albert (OBA), Leader of Akwa lbom Caucus in the National Assembly on Wednesday 26th June, 2019 organised a one day Women Entrepreneurial development training in partnership with Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency of Nigeria (SMEDAN) and AIMAM Integrated Synergy on the theme : Women Entrepreneurship Development at Senator OBA Liaison office, Ewet housing, Uyo.
Resource persons during the training focused on the need to start small and grow big with time as participants were exposed to business ethics, capital formation, pricing, integrity and many more to be able to succeed in business and were expected to go home with starter capital at the instance of the enigmatic and compassionate Senator to fund their emerging business ideas.
Participants who were all women were drawn from the 31 LGAs of Akwa lbom State and from our interactions were very grateful to Distinguished Senator Bassey Albert (OBA) for always initiating ways of giving back to the people.
