The Federal Government will, on June 9, inaugurate the 200, 000 capacity yam storage facility for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in Benue, the Presidency has said.

The Presidency in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja said the inauguration was part of the federal government’s determination to support the growth of small businesses across the country, through the provision of critical infrastructure.

The facility located at the Zaki Biam International Yam Market, is part of the National MSMEs Shared Facility Scheme, being implemented by the federal government under the National MSMEs Clinics.

The shared facility project, an initiative of the National MSMEs Clinics, is aimed at providing for the needs of businesses under a production cluster arrangement.

The pilot scheme was inaugurated by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in Oyo (the production of Shea-butter, and the Fashion Industry) and Bauchi (Production of Groundnut Oil, and the production of Liquid/Hard Soaps).

Mr Tola Johnson,  Special Assistant to the President on MSMEs, Office of the Vice President, said the facility would cater for smallholder farmers and MSMEs which had lost huge revenues due to lack of access to adequate storage facilities.
