Lagos plans digital platform for MSMEs


The Lagos State Government has said the use of electronic commerce will boost the growth of Micro Small and Medium Enterprises.

According to a statement on Monday, the state Commissioner for Commerce, Industry and Cooperatives, Dr Lola Akande, disclosed this, when she received the representatives of Brand Tell Nigeria on a courtesy visit to the ministry.

Akande, who was represented by the ministry’s Permanent Secretary, Mrs Adetutu Ososanya, added that the ministry will encourage the group in its efforts to develop a products hub to ensure valuable results.

She said, “I want to commend BTN for the visit and the initiative to empower your members through training in digital skills. Businesses must harness the benefits of digital platforms.

“Your efforts at providing such will help expand the number of MSMEs who can leverage technology to boost their businesses. There is a need for collaboration with BTN and its participation at its annual MSMEs exclusive fair and exhibition.”

The Leader of BTN, Adenike Fagbemi, stated that the group teaches business owners how to maximise the use of media platforms and social media for their benefit.
