The 15th session of Council of World Association for Medium and Small Enterprises, (WASME) has ended in India, with the Director-General of the Bayelsa State Microfinance and Enterprise Development Agency, Mr. Ebiekure Jasper Eradiri, emerging as a member of the governing board for the 2016 to 2018 tenure of the world body.

The election, which took place in Noida, India, also saw the emergence of Alhaji Babale Umar Girie, Dr. Dikko Umar Raddo and Dr. Ahmed M. Mohammed all of Nigeria as President and members of the governing board, respectively.

Speaking to newsmen shortly after his election into the WASME governing Board, Mr. Eradiri commended members of the global body for finding him worthy to serve it in this capacity, describing it as a call to greater service.

He pledged his commitment to work hard as well as produce the needed results to justify the confidence reposed in him by the global family of WASME, stressing that, he will bring his wealth of experience in microfinance enterprise management to bear on his new assignment.

According to him, his membership of the board of WASME will also afford him an opportunity to cross-pollinate ideas with experts from other parts of the world, with a view to also ensuring that, such interactions impact positively on the current efforts of the Bayelsa State Government to develop and encourage medium and small scale enterprise businesses across the State.

Mr. Eradiri also used the occasion to express his deep appreciation to Governor Seriake Dickson for giving him the opportunity to render service to the government and people of the State as Director-General of the Bayelsa State Microfinance and Enterprise Development Agency as well as the support and encouragement to participate in the global event of experts in the medium and small scale enterprise sector of their economies.

He noted that, his participation and election into the WASME Boards has put the State in a far more advantageous position in the comity of states that are in the forefront to promoting and developing medium and small scale enterprise businesses.

He went on to call on Bayelsans to take advantage of the facilities on offer at the State Microfinance and Enterprise Development Agency to develop businesses to make themselves self reliant and employers of labour, especially in these times of global economic recession.
