PEBEC 90-day Action Plan: Shettima demands stronger synergy, adoption of technology 

As the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC) commences its 90-day Regulatory Reform Accelerator Action Plan, Vice President Kashim Shettima has demanded stronger synergy and adoption of technology from stakeholders in the public and private sector to enhance the business environment in Nigeria.

The Vice President gave the charge on Tuesday during the second meeting of the PEBEC at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

He said a robust engagement among stakeholders and adopting relevant technology would help in addressing bottlenecks experienced by operators in the nation’s entry points as well as in the area of business regulation.

In her presentation, the Special Adviser to the President on PEBEC and Investment, Dr Jumoke Oduwole said the 90-day accelerator would deliver measurable export-focused impact for productivity and competitiveness across key sectors to improve the Nigerian business environment and support the economic initiatives of the Tinubu administration.

She said there was the need to approach the next 90 days with a sense of urgency and purpose to rapidly improve Nigeria’s business climate by collaborating with the private sector and demonstrating commitment to the overall wellbeing of Nigerians, particularly in these challenging times.

According to her, the 90-Day Regulatory Reform Accelerator Action Plan kick-off was preceded by an engagement session on Monday, February 19, 2024, with PEBEC Priority MDA Reform Champions.

She said the reform champions were apprised of the 90-day Regulatory Reform Accelerator Action Plan along with performance tracking mechanisms.

The mechanisms include fortnightly performance tracking meetings and a highly anticipated town hall meeting slated to be hosted by the Vice President in Q2 2024.
