Lagos to Provide Loans for Technical College Graduates



Lagos plans to provide financial support to graduates.

The Deputy Governor of Lagos Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire at the 2014 Enterprise Day in Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos, said that the state government will provide loans for graduates of technical colleges that show interest in starting up businesses in Lagos.

She explained that the loans would be given to the graduates without any collateral .

“The loan will be processed through the Lagos State Micro Finance Institution, and forms will be provided for the graduates at their institutions.” Adefulire stated.

According to the Deputy, the programme was to encourage entrepreneurial activities, as well as champion vocational and technical education.

Punch was first to report the story.

    Classic APC desperation attempts at votes after the criminal Fayose win. Point is, Fashola seems to be doing all in his last hour for the masses. I truly have a soft spot for the hardworking governor but this should have been done a lot earlier. Technical, Agricultural Students, Medical students (grants not loans given at final year levels of those studying Oncology, Neurology, Gynaecology, Pharmacology, everything especially Midwifery). Good effort but smacks of politics to me.

    @Marvel it is clear you cannot see beyond your nose,the reason why Nigeria is still where it is.I bet you say the same about your state governon,since all you see is ‘tribal war’ or should I say ‘bitterness that has eaten deep into a generation.SMH,it is sad you cannot see anything good in anyone without thinking it is regional politics.Pls be pleasant for once.I am really tired of the Nigeria where one tribe thinks everyone is their enemy when they are the sworn enemy esp when it is obvious to all the tribe that cannot tolerate them at all,but no,they will continue to attack the ones that accommodates them.In case you are wondering,I’m mixed too.

      Great point, U spoke a little and all sounded like a full novel. I am sick of people who cant stay without their insecurity or simply acknowledge good things of others, but counter their achievement, I am not against any tribe or any state outside S.W, but they need to stop promoting their bad leaders, we all know when Linda ikebe was promoting Gov. Kalu, a certified thief, that why they never grow economically but grow bad leaders. #JustSpeakingMyMindThou

    @ Marvel… In my opinion graduate Medical doctors & Midwives should have experience before starting off on their own. Experience matters. School intelligence is simply not enough.
    @ tee.. How did tribalism come into this discussion?
    The real tribalists , are usually the ones who are quick to tag others as tribalist. In Psychology, it is called an act of projection!
