A CALL TO KEY BUSINESS STAKEHOLDERS INVOLVEMENT IN THE EASE OF DOING BUSINESS COUNCIL IN KWARA STATE
I appreciate the efforts of the Kwara state government towards improving the state’s economy by supporting business owners since the beginning of this administration.
I also laud the administration of Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq for the new initiative of inaugurating a 12-person ease of doing business cmmittee that will help identify and resolve severe issues confronting business and entrepreneurship sectors in Kwara state.
The Committee is no doubt a major step towards improving the economy of the state and advancing the business of citizens of Kwara state.
However, I am using this opportunity to call on the committee on ease of doing business to involve and carry along relevant stakeholders in the business sector of the state. These stakeholders have first-hand account of what business owners are experiencing for it to live up to its potential of driving innovation and attracting new investments to the state.
As it stands only one representative of the Kwara Chamber of Commerce, Industry Mines and Agriculture – KWACCIMA is part of this Committee.
As a concerned citizen of the state and business woman, I am requesting that the committe look into this situation and involve key business stakeholders like representatives of Manufacturers’ Association of Nigeria- (MAN), National Association of Small & Medium Enterprises – (NASME), The Kwara State Artisan Congress (KWACO) as well as other bodies involved in the business sector of the state. The Hon. Commissioner for energy in the state should also be involved, because no industry can function effectively without the use of power and energy.
I sincerely hope that this is looked into and necessary adjustments are made to fast track the job of the committee.
