ANAMBRA State Government’s vision of making the state investors’ choice destination in Nigeria demands productive approach to administrative processes. Efficient service delivery hinges on structured administrative architecture driven by competent personnel.
The state Commissioner for Basic Education, Kate Omenugha stated this at the workshop on “Improving the Ease of Doing Business in Anambra”, organised recently, by the Ministry of Economic Planning, Budget, and Development Partners, in collaboration with the World Bank for top government officials from ministries and agencies in Awka.
She argued that Anambra is keen on meeting its developmental goals through training and other avenues to drive the state growth and development.
Dr. Omenugha declared that the choice of people invited for the workshop was quite appropriate, stating that they are the ones people regularly meet when they come to do business in the state. “You know in this state, we have the vision to make the state first point of call for investors. How do we ensure that we attract investors? How do we save government from delays in people who want to invest in the state?
“People who want to invest in the state must have it in an easy way, where there will be little or no delay in processes, whether in acquisition of land or in giving certificate. Whatever it is you want to do, it is important that minimum time is required.”
She further charged participants to ask fundamental questions on how to improve the process, how to minimise delays and not keep tossing people about when they come to their office. “You shouldn’t ask people to bring different documents or materials at different times. Why won’t you have all this things written down? There should be a way of having all these done at a table so that it can save people time, money and make them happy. The fundamental thing is what I am going to do to put a smile on investors in Anambra,” she said.
