He said “my intention is to ensure that those of our people that are hard working do not lose their dignity by engaging in illicit business but empower them to engage in genuine business.
“We try to assist them to make a living especially women because in the society, you will discover that in a difficult time like this, it is the women that carry the burden of the household, which is unfortunate. And for us to ensure good and happy family, we need to assist them to solder responsibility that is not meant for them.
“We are trying to meet the expectation of our people and also assist the Government to ensure that everybody maintains his human dignity,” he said.
