A group by the name Nigeria Entrepreneurs Forum Transformation Advocates, NEFTA said it has begun the process of mobilizing 20 million entrepreneurs across the country in support of the re-election of President Goodluck Jonathan.

The National coordinator of NEFTA who doubles as the President of the Nigeria Entrepreneurs Forum, NEF, Dr. Sidney Inegbedion disclosed this yesterday at a press chat in Abuja, saying that mobilization centres have been set up in the 36 states of the federation, including the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.

He said, that the decision of the group to mobilize 20 million entrepreneurs to support President Jonathan’s re-election in 2015 was informed by the sound industry policies he has put in place as well as the N220 billion Small and Medium Enterprises, SME’s fund which allocated 60 percent of the fund to women and 40 percent to men.

He said the present policies put in place by President Jonathan would checkmate the high unemployment rate in the country, and the worrisome population growth, if sustained through his re-election.

“Government has made progressive policies and supported industry development, if we support them to contest the 2015 election, it will encourage sustainable policies” Inegbedion said

He said NEFTA has slated an award for President Jonathan and its board members on industry friendly policies on Thursday in Abuja.
