NASS Committed To Improving Business Environment – Dogara


BY AMOS DUNIA, ABUJA – Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara has said the National Assembly will continue to play a central role not only in governance but also in ensuring that it deliberate and act on frameworks to improve Nigeria’s business environment through the review of relevant legislations and provisions of the constitution.

Accordingly, Dogara assured that the Federal legislators will act on legislations that will improve Nigeria’s business environment.

The Speaker, who gave this assurance on Monday while making remarks at the One year Anniversary of National Assembly Business Environment Roundtable (NASSBER), which held in the National Assembly, commended NASSBER for the successes it has achieved over the last one year.

He also commended the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, for demonstrating leadership and an unwavering commitment to the NASSBER process, saying the group’s efforts would lead to robust and responsive private sector.

He further said; “Looking back the last 12 months, NASSBER is but a success story of novel synergy, dialogue and engagement between the legislature, development partner, the private sector, the bench, and citizens.

“A little over a year ago when NASSBER was inaugurated, we were very confident it was the right step to take if we were indeed committed to bringing our economy out of recession, and stimulating long term economic growth that is inclusive and sustainable for the shared prosperity of all Nigerians.

Dogara, while charging members of the NASSBER Committees to provide the strategic guidance needed to move NASSBER initiative forward, noted that they are on course to having the law as a proactive instrument to promote development and, thus, influence and change present realities.

He also congratulated DFID ENABLE project, the Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG), and the Nigerian Bar Association – Session on Business Law (NBA-SBL) for their service to the nation through the project, adding that the outcome of their efforts will lead to an agile private sector that can respond to global opportunities.

According to him; “As a result of this effort, I am more confident that our economy would attract ‘agile private sector that can innovate and respond to global opportunities’, as contemplated in the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP) of this government.”
