Recall, the World Bank on Tuesday released its latest Doing Business Rankings, and in cheering news for the administration, the country moved up 24 places from 169th last year to 145th out of 190 ranked economies.
Nigeria was also recognized this year as one of the top 10 most improved Doing Business economies in the world. Now, the president has taken to twitter to react to the progress..
The news that Nigeria moved 24 places up in the World Bank Doing Business rankings released today is most welcome. I’m very pleased by it.
I congratulate all Nigerians on this landmark achievement, which symbolizes the success of our Ease of Doing Business Reforms.
I also congratulate all Stakeholders: the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC), the National Assembly, & State Govts.
Our goal is to make it easy for people – Nigerians and foreigners alike – to invest and do business in Nigeria. I’m pleased by this progress
We want our people to be able to register their businesses speedily; access land & credit & obtain licenses without bureaucratic bottlenecks
We also want foreign business visitors to obtain their visas on arrival; & pass through our airports & do their businesses with ease & speed
I particularly commend PEBEC, chaired by Vice President @ProfOsinbajo, for this job well done in improving Nigeria’s business environment.
I look forward to even greater achievements that will make a difference in the lives of all Nigerians. We will not let you down.
