Nigeria’s Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, Thursday signed three executive orders that will henceforth change how government business and operations are conducted. According to a statement released by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, the three executive orders are:
1.Ease of Doing Business
2. Support for ‘Made in Nigeria’
3. Timely submission of MDAs budgets
The order on Ease of doing business will help in the promotion of transparency and efficiency in the business environment and also facilitate ease of doing business in Nigeria.
The order for support for Made in Nigeria will ensure the procurement of only made in Nigeria products by the government. The order on timely submission of MDAs budgets will ensure timely submission of annual budgetary estimates by all statutory and non-statutory agencies.
These will help in trade and investment which would benefit businesses including Agribusinesses in Nigeria.
