He also proposed a tripartite agreement on entrepreneurial training for Corps members by the NYSC, SMEDAN and the Bank of Industry.

‘NYSC is in a very strategic position to achieve our mandate of assisting Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises in Nigeria’, Umar said.

While responding, Brigadier General Kazaure urged SMEDAN to provide technical assistance and capacity training for Corps members that are into Skills Acquisition programme.
