The Special Adviser to the Delta State governor on Entrepreneurship Development, Dr. Donald Onyibe Peterson has described entrepreneurs as players in the socio-economic development of any growing nation.
Dr. Peterson stated this during a week-long retreat for top government officials in the state, organised by the Delta State Government.
The Special Adviser who participated in the discussions, said the roles of entrepreneurs in ensuring a progressive economic growth of Delta State can not be over emphasized.
…”Show me a stable economy in the world and I will show you an economy that is driven by entrepreneurs.” He reiterated.
Dr. Peterson said China is currently the fastest growing economy in the world as a result of pockets of small scale and medium scale firms that are massive employers of labour, thereby absorbing majority of their teaming population.
He added that Delta State is in the lead in developing entrepreneurship hubs in Nigeria as the M.O.R.E Agenda is packed full with plans to boost entrepreneurship spirit among Deltans without age restrictions.
The retreat commenced on Monday, November 13, 2023, at the Multipurpose Hall, Maryam Babangida Leisure Park, Asaba, with the theme: Delivering the M.O.R.E Agenda for Advancing Delta: Strategy and Enablers.
