N/Assembly committed to passing laws to improve businees environment, Dogara assures
The speaker of the House of Representatives,  Hon. Yakubu Dogara has assured that the National Assembly will  act on legislations that will improve Nigeria’s business environment.
Dogara gave this assurance on Monday while presenting remarks at the One year Anniversary of National Assembly Business Environment Roundtable, NASSBER, held in the National Assembly.
He commended NASSBER for the successes it has achieved over the last one year, saying the group’s efforts would lead to robust and responsive private sector.
“Looking back the last 12 months, NASSBER is but a success story of novel synergy, dialogue and engagement between the legislature, development partner, the private sector, the bench, and citizens. The National Assembly will continue to play a central role not only in governance but also ensuring that we deliberate and act on frameworks that will improve Nigeria’s business environment through the review of relevant legislations and provisions of the constitution “.
“A little over a year ago when NASSBER was inaugurated, we were very confident it was the right step to take if we were indeed committed to bringing our economy out of recession, and stimulating long term economic growth that is inclusive and sustainable for the shared prosperity of all Nigerians.
Dogara, while charging members of the NASSBER Committees to provide the strategic guidance needed to move NASSBER initiative forward, noted that they are on course to having the law as a proactive instrument to promote development and, thus, influence and change present realities.
He congratulated DFID ENABLE project, the Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG), and the Nigerian Bar Association – Session on Business Law (NBA-SBL) for their service to the nation through the project,  adding that the outcome of their efforts will lead to an agile private sector that can respond to global opportunities.
“As a result of this effort, I am more confident that our economy would attract ‘agile private sector that can innovate and respond to global opportunities’, as contemplated in the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP) of this governmen,” he stated.
The Speaker also commended the Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki, for demonstrating leadership and an unwavering commitment to the NASSBER process.
