The Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) has introduced an online registration method aimed at curbing the menace of fraudsters and middlemen. Its Acting Registrar-General, Lady Azuka Azinge, who spoke at a sensitization programme in Kano, said the online registration method would go a long way in curbing hiccups and ambiguities hitherto associated with registration of companies in the country.
She said the sensitisation visit was organised in collaboration with the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC), adding that the intention was to bring together the management of the Commission, stakeholders and members of the public to interact on issues pertaining to the current reform initiatives of the Commission in providing an enabling business environment in the country.
“The Kano sensitisation programme, which is the second in the series, is in pursuant to the 60 days Action Plan of the Federal Government on Ease of Doing Business in Nigeria,” she said, adding that the first visit was held in Lagos on the October 19.
In her goodwill message, Senior Special Assistant to Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, on Trade and Investment, Dr Jumoke Oduwole, represented by Ms Rebecca Dokun, hailed the CAC reform initiatives and urged stakeholders and members of the public to take advantage of the company registration portal to register their business directly without hitches.
