The Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) has announced plans to take business registration process to specialized markets.
The commission said this in a statement signed by Mr Uchenna Arisukwu, Programmes Coordinator, African Centre for Leadership, Strategy and Development in Abuja last weekend.
He said that CAC disclosed the plan when the centre visited the Acting Registrar-General of CAC, Ms Azinge Azuka. Arisukwu quoted Azuka as saying that the aim is to create a seamless registration process.
She said it was also to further reduce time and cost of registration of companies and other post incorporation processes in the country.
She said CAC has connected 20 of its offices to its online processes to enable its clients perform business registration without inhibitions with hope that the 38 state offices would be covered by March 2018.
“In addition to opening its processes for greater and easier access, the commission is taking the business registration process to specialized markets through its mobile registration centers.
“Apparently to showcase its new model service which sees its work as business and not public service,” Azuka said.
The acting registrar-general said the commission would also set up a desk to facilitate ease of doing business in Nigeria.
On his part, Mr Arisukwu, said the centre had commissioned a research into the extant laws of agencies implementing the OGP commitments which CAC is among.
According to Arisukwu, the report of the research has since been validated by a government-CSOs roundtable convened by the center and the reports are being published in a book.
