WHEN Dr. Dikko Umar Radda was appointed as the Director-General of Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency of Nigeria (SMEDAN), by President Muhammadu Buhari, many were asking what the former Chief of Staff to the Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari, was bringing to the table.
But ever since his appointment, the former national welfare secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has continued to uplift small and medium scale entrepreneurs. Last week, he was seen monitoring and motivating entrepreneurs, especially young men making ends meet in Katsina State.
Radda obtained two Master’s degrees in Agricultural Extension and International Affairs and Diplomacy from the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, and has also a PhD in Agricultural Extension and Rural Sociology. He has also worked as a teacher and a banker.
