Mumuni added that "The essence of the seminar is to sensitize our members,including the general public to self employment and business opportunities in our environment. It is also to provide platform to expose our members and the Muslim Ummah to government policy direction including facilities and incentives which government & its agencies provide to promote businesses in various sectors of the economy."
He stressed that "For this year, especially in the light of dwindling oil prices and consequent scarcity of foreign earning, we felt that we could focus on opportunities in export business with a view to taking advantage of government policy on diversification of the economy,especially in non-oil export."
