President Muhammadu Buhari has welcomed the improvement of Nigeria on the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business latest rankings released Tuesday.

Besides moving up 24 places in the rankings, Nigeria is also reported by the World Bank to be among the Top Ten Reformers globally.

The President congratulated all Nigerians on this very significant step forward 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 encountering unnecessary bureaucratic bottlenecks.

According to President Buhari, “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.”

He particularly commended PEDEC chaired by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, for a job well done, stressing that he looks forward to even greater achievements for the nation.

    Buhari is so delusional, it’s not even funny. I respect older people but there should be age limit to the presidency. The older one gets, you start to be disconnected, reclusive and detached from the real world. And they are stuck in their own time in a fast evolving era. It’s okay when you are in your corner, but not in a position of power with great responsibilities of a whole country.
