which symbolizes the real success achieved by the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC), the National Assembly and state governments in making it easy for people to register their businesses speedily, obtain licenses and approvals from government agencies without unnecessary bureaucratic bottlenecks.

“It also reflects our efforts to make it easy for foreign business visitors to obtain visa on arrival, pass through our airports and do their businesses with ease and speed,” Adesina quoted the President as saying.
