Video: Ajuri Ngelale further explains MSME Survival Fund Scheme on AIT

The Senior Special Assistant to President Mohammadu Buhari on Public Affairs, Ajuri Ngelale was live, yesterday, on the African Independent Television (AIT) breaking down several question asked about the Federal Government N75billion MSME Survival Fund Scheme on the MoneyLine Program of the TV Station with Nancy Nnaji.

Reacting to question on how the government wishes to ensure that only eligible candidates register for the Artisan/Transport Supports of the Survival Fund Scheme, Ajuri noted that a significant requirement in that category  is that every Artisan or Transporter must belong to an association of their skill or enterprise.  

Ajuri clarified that in Nigeria, there are associations such the Okada Riders  Association, Keke Riders Association orUnions which can clearly identify an individual as a member of the Artisan/Transport category.

The SSA to the President pointed out that as long as one can be identified and validated as a member of a union or association of a related skill not minding wether one is a driver, motor-conductor, mechanic, plumber, tailor or mason man, one is eligible to benefit from the one time grant for the Artisans and Transport Spports category.

Ajuri furthered that from 15th October, 2020, next week, the program kicks off for other categories including the Formalisation Support i.e. the free CAC Registration for 250,000 unregistered MSMEs, noting that the Federal Government had cleared the payment for the CAC Certificates with Corporate Affairs Commission. 

Ajuri added that the process of the subsequent registration just as the Payrol Support, would be in batches so as to ensure that the registration portal does not crash as seen during the registration for the N-power program.
