NDDC, SMEDAN to establish enterprise innovation hub in N. Delta


The Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), with the Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency of Nigeria (SMEDAN), and a private sector organisation for the establishment of Nigeria’s first and grandest enterprise innovation and growth hub, Independent reports.

The tripartite agreement, which kick-starts the investment hub project, was signed last week during a meeting at the NDDC headquarters in Port Harcourt between the NDDC, SMEDAN and Builders Hub Impact Investment Programme (BHIIP).

Mr. Nsima Ekere, the NDDC Managing Director, said that the meeting was a follow up to a previous engagement with Director-General of SMEDAN, Dr Dikko Radda, at his office in Abuja. Ekere said that the partnership with SMEDAN was one way of proving to Nigerians that inter-agency collaboration and synergy could work.
