The National Assembly has been commended for being on the same page with the Buhari administration in its determined pursuit of reforming Nigeria’s business environment.
The Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo gave the commendation at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, while receiving the 2019 Compliance Report of the Presidential Executive Order 001 on the promotion of transparency and efficiency in the business environment.
He however, called for the eventual attainment of all the other outstanding reform objectives.
Osinbajo’s spokesman, Laolu Akande in a statement, said the vice president expressed optimism that the reforms would bring dramatic changes to the Nigerian economy.
According to him, President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration would continue its determined pursuit of reforming Nigeria’s business environment until the full attainment of the objectives.
The report was presented by the Minister of State for Industry, Trade and Investment, Mariam Katagum, and the Special Adviser to the President on Ease of Doing Business, Dr Jumoke Oduwole during the meeting of the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC).
“We will keep updating ourselves on the progress of the ease of doing business reforms while noting some of the progress already recorded in the last three years since the commencement of the ease of doing business reforms.’’
“If we can clean up our business environment, the difference would be dramatic,” he said.
Recall that in 2017, in the World Bank Doing Business Ranking, Nigeria moved up 24 places and was also listed among the top ten reforming economies in the world and one of the top-20 improvers in doing business out of 190 countries in 2019.
