Why Tinubu’s emergence as ECOWAS Chairman will boost businesses – NASME

The Nigerian Association of Small and Medium Enterprises (NASME) said President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s emergence as the Chairman of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) would ensure policies promoting economic activities in West Africa.

The President and Chairman Governing Council of NASME, Abdulrashid Yerima, disclosed this on Tuesday in a statement.

Recall that Tinubu emerged as the Chairman of ECOWAS at the 63rd Ordinary Session of the bloc in Guinea Bissau.

Yerima, in his reaction to Tinubu’s emergence, said it would boost Micro, Small and Mediums enterprises within the sub-region.

“This will go a long way in helping the economies of the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) and facilitate the integration of economic activities in the region.

“This will thereby improve security, economies and the MSMEs.

“It will also enhance trade because of the large size of the Nigerian market.

“So, it is a win-win for ECOWAS member states, Nigeria, and our MSMEs”, he stated.
