The League of Anambra Media Practitioners (LAMP), a body of journalists of Anambra state origin, practicing in Abuja, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari, to as a matter of urgency; confirm the appointment of the acting Registrar General of the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), Lady Azuka Azinge, as the substantive Registrar General.
LAMP in a press statement by its Convener, Mr Williams Orji, Monday in Abuja, regretted that Lady Azinge, who has transformed the commission since she assumed office, over a year ago, was still in acting capacity despite numerous transformations on easy of doing business she introduced to the commission.
Orji said the acting registrar also has to her credit, among others: “the abolition of proficiency certificate requirement; the increment of number of small scale business registration through a new federal government policy; the reduction of the number of hours spent to conduct a search from days to just four hours, while the registration services can be done now within 24 hours, through online.”
The group wondered why, having done so much in reinvigorating and repositioning CAC to its current state, which has attracted more businesses to the country, confirmation of the appointment of the brain behind such feat was being delayed.
“…the achievement she has brought to CAC shows that no previous registrar general has surpassed her feat. She has brought professionalism and efficiency in the running of the once moribund commission, where it can now boast of making more money for the federal government.
“Therefore, we beseech Mr President, to speedily confirm her appointment, as a way of motivating her for more hard work and innovations in line with the present administration’s economic revival,” the body said in the statement.
