No fewer than 500 Nigerians would benefit from the Dutch government’s plan to give Young Nigerians support with their business idea development this year.
This Information was disclosed by Micheal Deleen who is the head of the Netherlands delegation in Nigeria. Mr Deleen who was speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos, also revealed that the Netherlands delegation is also looking into partnering with Dutch companies that are based in Nigeria in the area of training young Nigerians that are employable.
Deleen, who doubles as the Netherlands Deputy Ambassador revealed that the main reason for the project is to encourage Young Nigerians to always step up with good concepts and business ideas.
Quoted by Premium times, Mr Deleen had this to say:
In 2016, we started a programme aimed at assisting young men and women across Nigeria, who are interested in increasing their employability.
“This year, outside our plan to continue to strengthen our agricultural development cooperation with Nigeria, we are also going to be providing support for young Nigerians with the right business ideas.
“We are going to be supporting young Nigerians, who have good business ideas, but have no funds to effectively process such ideas,”
