Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo Thursday signed three executive orders aimed at improving private and government’s business operations in the country. Following the campaign for Nigerians to patronise more of the country’s local content and or products and jettison the consumption of foreign goods to boost the country’s economy, the Federal government has continued to pursue policies that will provide an enabling environment for local businesses to thrive and compete globally.
Nigeria has all the basic requirements to grow its economy and create millions of jobs if the business environment is made friendly, especially to encourage local producers and local products. This calls to mind the Made-In-Nigeria project championed by the government.
It was all the effort to achieve that the acting president, Prof Yemi Osinbajo Thursday signed three executive orders gocused on the ease of doing business in Nigeria.
The orders are:
One:Ease of Doing Business ( part of Senate Plan)
Two: Support for ‘Made in Nigeria’ (an idea by the Senate President)
Three: Timely submission of MDAs budgets (issue raised by the Senate).
Earlier, Professor Osinbajo chaired an interactive session on “Ease of Doing Business” with permanent secretaries and heads of Federal agencies including ministers, permanent secretaries and heads of departments at the old Banquet Hall of Presidential Villa. The session was meant to directly engage government officials who would be implementing the orders and the new instructions.
