While acknowledging that the COVID-19 pandemic has pushed businesses around the world over the technology tipping point, given rise to new industry challenges, and has forever transformed businesses, Dr. Abubakar urged operators of small and medium scale businesses not to relent and continue to advocate for an improved business climate in Nigeria.
