Gbenga Sodeinde in Ado Ekiti
Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Biodun Oyebanji, has restated his administration’s commitment to prioritising policies, strategies and programmes that would bring business growth in the state.
The governor stated this yesterday at a meeting with stakeholders and members of the Council on Ease of Doing Business to review strategies that would enhance the economy of the state through technologically driven innovations that would attract investors.
He stated that for the state to improve on Ease of Doing Business ratings, there must be concerted efforts at ensuring interconnectivity of the affected ministries and parastatals to ensure well-coordinated private sector activities.
The governor also stressed the need to activate the one-stop shop where all activities relating to business registration could be done at one point and within a short period of time, adding that this would help to attract both national and international investors to the state.
Oyebanji added that in its drive to achieve remarkable progress, the government would collaborate with the judiciary in the establishment of small claims courts outside Ado and Ikere divisions to handle commercial disputes that could be disposed of within a short period thereby creating an enabling environment for the private sector economy to thrive in the state.
