As part of its reform measures for efficient service delivery, the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) reports that it is collaborating with the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC).
This was said in a statement released on Wednesday in Abuja by Mr. Rasheed Mahe, the CAC’s Head of Media Unit. Alhaji Garba Abubakar is the Registrar-General of the CAC.
At the recently finished management retreat in Kano with the topic “Corporate Affairs Commission: Consolidating on the Gains of Digital Transformation,” the registrar-general delivered a speech.
He claims that the commission’s collaboration with NIMC is well along.
When the CAC is in place, Abubakar predicted that it could not require signatures to process registration applications as other countries did, but rather just NIN enrollment numbers.
He said that the commission was blessed with highly talented, committed and skilled personnel who worked outside office hours to approve applications from customers.
Abubakar said that training and re-training of its members of staff in all sectors of its operations would continue to receive priority attention in a bid to achieve its mandates.
The registrar-general said that the commission would train 700 members of staff by the end of the year as against the 583 trained in 2021.
Abubakar said that more staff of the Commission would be empowered with working tools, adding that some of the tools would be provided by the World Bank.
He said that the work tools would enable them grant registration approvals even outside of working hours.
Abubakar enjoined staff to re-dedicate themselves to duty, especially those handling approvals to exercise caution in order to guard against avoidable errors.
Speaking on the new insolvency framework in pursuant to CAMA, 2020, the CAC boss enjoined legal practitioners to explore the enormous potential provided by the new legal arrangement.
In her vote of thanks, the Director, Customer Service, Mrs Ifeoma Isaac lauded the reform initiatives championed by the registrar-general.
The statement quoted Chairman of the Retreat Planning Committee, Duke Ukaga, as making a presentation on “Update on the Implementation of the 2021 Management Retreat’’.
Newsmen reports that the two-day event featured presentations of diverse topics.
They include the Current Innovations on the Companies Registration Portal (CRP), Ease of Doing Business: The Rwandan Experience, the Revised Operations Checklist and an Introduction to the Insolvency Regulations, among others.
