Why we're slow in fighting corruption – President Buhari

 

The federal government of Nigeria has launched an app, REPORTGOV, in its quest to further enhance the ease of doing business in Nigeria.

Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Mr. Okechukwu Enelamah, launched the app in Lagos, yesterday, at the third Regulatory Conversations of the Convention on Business Integrity Limited with the theme, “Improving Transparency and Ease of Doing Business in Nigeria”.

He said that the app will ensure adequate access to information which is needed to improve business decisions. He stated: “With the app, you can make a complaint and it is forwarded to the affected Ministry, Department or Agency (MDA) of government to respond to and you can follow up on the status of your complaint and get feedback.”

In her remarks,  Dr. Jumoke Oduwole, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Industry, Trade and Investment, said the app is an innovative platform designed  by the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC)to receive feedback and complaints from the general public regarding the quality of service delivered by any MDA of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

PEBEC was established in 2016 to remove critical bottlenecks affecting ease of doing business in Nigeria, to allow the private sector unleash its full potential  and is chaired by the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.

Oduwole who is also PEBEC Secretary said: “REPORTGOV.NG website or the mobile App make it easy for you to resolve issues you encounter when dealing with government agencies and get a feedback within 72 hours at the latest.

“When you file a complaint and tell your story, you contribute to federal enforcement, service delivery and public protection efforts on a national level and help us identify trends and track the issues that matter to the citizens. When you give feedback or file a complaint, you contribute to continuous improvement in service delivery and public protection efforts on a national level.”

She noted that the app will further help to increase overall efficiency of the government and its parastatals, bring any criminal closer to justice, help deter others from violating people’s rights or comfort and ultimately help make business easier.

Nigerians should have a day to cry every month — Aregbesola

The former governor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola, and the lawmaker representing Lagos West Senatorial District in the Green Chamber Senator, Solomon Olamilekan Adeola, have eulogised the virtues of Hon Abdulahi Ayinde Enilolobo, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos.

Speaking at a symposium to celebrate the party chieftain’s Golden jubilee, the duo, described Enilolobo as a humble, dedicated and honest family and party man.

Senator Yayi said: ” Hon Enilolobo means everything to me. He is a political juganut in the setting of Lagos, he is a seasoned administrator who is blessed with a loving mother.

“He has contributed immensely to the success of the party especially in Alimosho. If he wanted any political office, he would get it but he prefers to remain a party man. He has touched many lives and would satisfy others before himself. He has always  been there for everyone of us.”

Expressing concern about the relationship between the country’s growing population and the lean revenue accruing to the nation, Aregbesola said: “We don’t remember that we are poor here in Nigeria. If we have a deep thought, we ought to have a day of weeping every month.

“If we don’t work harder to improve our fortunes, we would continue to be poor. In 2017, Brazil had a population of approximately 200 million people almost about what Nigeria had. That year, Brazil had a revenue of about $600  billion and a budget of $700 billion.  Nigeria in that same year made $13 billion and a budget of $23 billion. Are the two countries equal?

“Today, OPEC allowed Nigeria to extract and sell 2million barrel of crude oil per day but we don’t get that quantity. Even if we get 2million barrel per day and if the price rises to $100 per barrel, it means our income will be $200 million.

” If you divide this by 200 million people, it amounts to $1 per every Nigerian.  We have to check our population by practicing birth control. If we don’t address this, we would have huge problems to deal with. We would also need every able-bodied person to work.”
