The Federal Government’s ease of doing business has received a boost with the launching of App, an official public service feedback and complaints platform to support business climate reforms being implemented by the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC) since 2016.

The platform was co-launched by the Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment Dr. Okey Enelamah; Chairman, Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria, Mr. Adedotun Sulaiman, MFR; and SSA to the President on Industry, Trade and Investment, Dr Jumoke Oduwole at the Regulatory Conversations (RC3.0). It is also a website and will facilitate the escalation and resolution of issues encountered with Ministries Departments and Agencies (MDAs) towards ensuring a more business-friendly environment.

The event with the theme “Improving Transparency and Ease of Doing Business in Nigeria,” was hosted by the Convention on Business Integrity in collaboration with ActionAid, Nigerian Economic Summit Group, Lagos Chamber of Commerce & Industry, BusinessDay Newspapers in partnership with the Enabling Business Environment Secretariat (EBES) of the Council.

The programme featured a panel of discussants and stakeholders from the public, private sector and civil society, with a focus on issues bordering on transparency and efficiency of service delivery in Nigeria.

PEBEC was established in July 2016 to remove delays and restrictions that come with doing business in Nigeria and make the country an easier place to start and grow a business.

The mobile app is available on the Google Play store, and is coming soon to the iOS store to enable users give feedback or complaint that will drive continuous improvement in service delivery and public protection efforts. The importance derives from Nigeria’s current status as being 146th in 190 economies in the ease of doing business index according to the latest World Bank annual rankings.

Supported by Executive Order 001 (EO1) signed in 2017 to promote transparency and efficiency in the business environment, PEBEC has undertaken to drive EO1’s six directives, which aim to address specific limitations identified in the civil and public service systems.

Many have taken up the challenge to deliver more transparent and efficient services to their customers in alignment with EO1, with a number of notable milestones achieved such as an increase in the number of MDAs that have functional websites containing detailed information about their services or statutory functions, as well as improved collaboration among MDAs.
