Anambra leads Nigeria’s ease-of-doing business



ANAMBRA is leading Nigeria’s ease of doing business (EoD) index for 2022 while Gombe, Sokoto, and Jigawa follow next.

  World Bank gave the list in its latest report on global ease of doing  business index released yesterday.

Ranking Nigeria 131 among 190 economies that were covered in the year’s chart, the report indicated that Lagos, Ogun, and Rivers came out low among other states of the federation.

  Describing the report as a ‘judgement day’ for states, a release issued by a national finance watchdog, BudGit, says Akwa Ibom, Bauchi, Kebbi, Ondo, Katsina, and Bayelsa ranked 4th to 10th in the table.

While Rivers is sharing the 11th position with Imo, leaving Kaduna, Plateau, Osun, Benue, and Ekiti at the 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th, and 18th positions, Adamawa took 21st position behind Ogun and Lagos, while Kogi, in the face of the crisis between it and Dangote Cement ranked 22nd. Others are Ebonyi, Nasarawa, Yobe, Niger, Enugu, Cross River, Oyo, Kwara, Borno, and Kano struggled to follow one another from 23rd to 32nd with Zamfara followed by Taraba, Delta, Edo, and Abia as the five states from the bottom.

  It will be recalled that ranking of economies is determined by sorting the aggregate ease of doing business scores.
