It however deduced that if the country had a vibrant social enterprise sector, some of these funds could be channeled through credible social enterprises. Therefore, Nigeria needs innovative and creative social entrepreneurs to revive the country's social economy and address growing social difficulties as Social Enterprises may be the vehicles to accelerate change in the economy.
