As part of the cardinal objectives of the Chief Nabil Saleh led administration to provide a One-Stop-Shop outlet in the City Chambers secretariat for strategic government agencies and institutions to facilitate ease of doing business, the President on Monday presented keys to the Bayelsa/Rivers state Coordinator of the Standard Organization of Nigeria (SON), Mr. Ololade Ayoola, to occupy their office as the first beneficiary.
Presenting the keys, Chief Saleh noted that his administration is committed to entrenching policies and processes that would ensure that clogs in wheel of business progress were eradicated.
According to him, in spite of efforts to help member businesses and others in the state to thrive, the One-Stop-Shop objective is to facilitate administrative procedures and enhance the ability of members to do everything they needed to do for a business in a single location.
He said: “The Standard organization of Nigeria has the honor of being the first to occupy its space. More agencies like NEPC, NIPC, NSC, NAFDAC, BOI, BOA, NAFDAC among others will follow suit in our effort at improving coordination between member businesses and the different business support agencies of Government in the country to enable a variety of procedures to be completed more quickly and accurately.”
The SON Coordinator who seemed excited at the gesture expressed gratitude to the PHCCIMA President and his team for thinking in this direction. He promised to make judicious use of the opportunity to help facilitate member businesses and beyond.
The 1st Deputy President, Chief Mike Elechi, Financial Secretary Mrs Oriaku Hanson Oyet-Ille, Publicity Secretary Mrs Mercy Bello Abu, and Elected Council member, Engr Godwin Etim, were in attendance.
