FG implements 180 ease of doing business reforms

The Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council has executed more than 180 reforms aimed at making Nigeria a progressively better place to start and do business.

This was disclosed in Abuja on Tuesday by the Special Adviser to the President on Ease of Doing Business and Secretary of PEBEC, Dr Jumoke Oduwole, during stakeholders’ sensitisation programme on the Business Facilitation Act 2022, which was recently signed into law by Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari.

Oduwole said most of the 180 reforms were targeted at impacting the life cycles of micro, small and medium enterprises to ensure they performed better in the economy.

Oduwole noted that the reforms cut across automation aimed at minimising human intervention in regulatory processes, including regulatory reforms to enhance performance, cost-effectiveness, or legal quality of regulations as well as port/trade reforms to streamline and simplify procedures for trade.

The PEBEC scribe noted that there had been enforcement of Executive Order 001 directives and resolution of complaints via ReportGov.NG.

She further said that the key takeaway from the Executive Order 001 was that progress was being recorded on the efficiency and transparency directives among Ministries, Departments and Agencies.
