His words “This award from PEBEC and by extension the presidency is a call to serve more. I appreciate our Honorable Minister, Adegboyega Oyetola, CON, who not only convened a meeting between NIMASA and the PEBEC secretariat but constantly kept us on our toes to ensure better service delivery to stakeholders. I also wish to commend members of team NIMASA and we know that this is simply a call to more service to our stakeholders”. Mobereola stated.

The Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC) which is chaired by Vice President, Kassim Shettima GCON, was established to remove bureaucratic constraints to doing business in Nigeria and make the country a progressively easier place to start and grow a business.

This is also in line with the Business Facilitation Act 2023, a legislative intervention by the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council, PEBEC, to codify an executive order on the promotion of Transparency and Efficiency in the Business environment.
