42 PEOPLE GRADUATES FROM NEPC’S ZERO TO EXPORT CAPACITY BUILDING PROGRAMME

Olusegun Awolowo, CEO, NEPC
Officials of the Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC) say Port Harcourt is ready to join export drive, as about 42 persons from the South-South geo-political zone have benefited from the zero to export training organised by the NEPC. http://www.tectono-business.com/2016/02/contemporary-step-by-step-guide-to.html

Congratulating the participants, the project coordinator, Kola Awe, enjoined them to bring what they learnt to bear in the quest for diversification of Nigeria’s economy by assiduously searching for markets for their products, assuring them of support.

Hmmm!!! Folks, let us say the truth and shame the devil. Many Nigerian non-oil products exporters have been defrauded of huge amount of money in the process of exporting agricultural commodities and solid minerals to foreign countries. Do you know why? They were not trained on export operations, management, documentations and the best methods of payment in export trade. This is terrible!!! Nigerians cannot continue to lose money to foreigners in the course of export business. Exporters, would you like to keep on being scammed? Why don’t you get a practical manual that explains the stages of export trade from processing and packaging of commodities to receipt of payment by the foreign buyers? It explains export operations, export management, export documentations and methods of payment in export trade? Yes, it is a contemporary step-by-step guide to export trade. It tells all the contemporary dynamics in export trade. To get it, click on this link: http://www.tectono-business.com/2016/02/contemporary-step-by-step-guide-to.html

“Port Harcourt has shown itself to be ready for export. Port Harcourt is the flagship of the South-South,” Awe said. http://www.tectono-business.com/2016/02/contemporary-step-by-step-guide-to.html The 42 persons received their certificates of participation on Thursday at a graduation ceremony held at Aldgate Hotel, Sani Abacha Road, Port Harcourt.

Addressing the graduands during the ceremony, Joe Ita, who represented the CEO of NEPC, Olusegun Awolowo, urged them to apply the knowledge they acquired during the training towards the quest for diversification of Nigeria’s economy by exploring the export business.

The CEO said NEPC would continue to create opportunities for Nigerians to imbibe the culture of exportation through capacity building training programmes as it celebrates the passing out of 42 trainees of Zero to Export Capacity Building Programme.

Awolowo made this known at the Batch 5 Zero to Export Graduation Ceremony in Port Harcourt. http://www.tectono-business.com/2016/02/contemporary-step-by-step-guide-to.html He said that the Zero to Export Programme had been part of the Council’s efforts to reposition the non-oil sector, enforcing the narrative of the Council through job creation and inclusive growth – thereby making it a major contributor to the Gross Domestic Product of Nigeria.

He said, “There is no doubt that the essence of our gathering today underscores the crucial role that non-oil export sector plays in the present administration’s effort at diversifying the Nigerian economy away from over reliance on oil as its main stay, especially with incessant fluctuations in oil prices.”

Earlier in her opening remark, Pauline Ndulaka, who represented the regional coordinator, South-South, said the zero to export programme of NEPC was meant to create a pool of investors and urged the graduands to effectively utilise the knowledge they acquired. http://www.tectono-business.com/2016/02/contemporary-step-by-step-guide-to.html

Emmanuel Nwankwo, who represented the permanent secretary, Rivers State Ministry of Commerce, assured the participants that the ministry would give them adequate cooperative training, which he said would improve their skills, saying the ministry of commerce, which he said was SME-friendly, would soon open an SME Clinic in the state.

Most of the participants expressed gratitude to the Nigerian Export Promotion Council for initiating the zero to export capacity building programme and giving them the opportunity to benefit from the training.

Fellow Nigerians, are you aware that our crude oil will soon become useless? Yes, it will, in no distant time, become valueless owing to the fact that the countries that rely on it as their only source of energy are developing more affordable alternative sources of energy. When this finally happens, what will we do? How are we currently preparing for this imminent economic doom? Which other sector will continue to stabilize our economy? Nigerians, the only solution is developing the agricultural sector. In fact, this is the only solution. Very soon, the major source of revenue will become agriculture and agro-exports. How are you positioning yourself to play big in agro-export business? Why don’t you get a practical manual that explains the stages of export trade from processing and packaging of commodities to receipt of payment by the foreign buyers? Yes, arm yourself with the contemporary trends in export trade. This manual explains export operations, export management, export documentations and methods of payment in export trade?

Abraham Princewill Chibueze, who served as course representative during the training, described the programme as essential and eye opening, adding that they were taught how to start the export business and use it to better their lives while also contributing to the diversification of Nigeria’s economy. http://www.tectono-business.com/2016/02/contemporary-step-by-step-guide-to.html

In an interview shortly after the programme, Joe Ita, who is also the Director of Corporate Communications, NEPC, said they decided to hold the programme in Port Harcourt because all the 42 participants were from the South-South.

Itah, who represented the CEO at the event, added: “We’re also planning another model in Port Harcourt which will run for six months. The idea is to grow the export culture and take jobless people out of the streets.” (BusinessDay)
