Senate President, Bukola Saraki has said that the National Assembly is working to improve the business environment in Nigeria.

Saraki also said that the Assembly had been given a deadline of 60 days to pass specific laws that will make it easier for investors to do business in the country.

He made the comments on Tuesday, February 22, while speaking at a meeting of the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

“I think meeting and working together with the executive will make it much easier. This is a strong message for investors out there who are coming in. And we have given ourselves timelines,” Saraki said according to The Tribune.

“We have been given 60 days for some specific bills to be passed and we hope and promised that we will do that on our own part. It’s a good initiative and it will go a long way to improve business environment.

“These are some of the bills we need to pass in order to improve the business environment. One is the area of access to credit, there are two of them in particular, Credit Bureau Bill and Collateral Transactions Security, those are the two we are working on to ensure its passed as soon as possible,” he added.
