Sen. Yusuf A. Yusuf (APC Taraba Central) initiated another bill for the Establishment of the INTEGRATED CORPORATE COMMERCIAL DATA MANAGEMENT COMMISSION. The bill has so far passed second reading at the red chamber.
SENATOR YUSUF'S STATEMENT
I have initiated, authored, presented and is sponsoring a Bill for the Establishment of the INTEGRATED CORPORATE COMMERCIAL DATA MANAGEMENT COMMISSION. I am honoured that this Senate Bill has gone through a Second Reading.
The thrust of this Bill is to create a Commission responsible for the comprehensive management of all data relating to duly registered Corporate Commercial entities in Nigeria, with a view to creating a one-stop-shop for all information on businesses and corporate entities in Nigeria. The Commission would undertake the comprehensive collation and harmonisation of all certificates issued by corporate commercial regulatory bodies in Nigeria, and then ensure smooth relationships between these regulatory bodies as far as businesses and corporate entities are concerned.
This Commission, if established, would also grade corporate commercial and business entities in Nigeria based on compliance and administrative performances, so that this gradation forms a framework for rewarding, through incentives, such businesses and corporations for clear identification by customers and other business partners.
The Commission would be self-financing, through its internally generated revenue, and as such it would not be a burden on the purse of government.
It will be my pleasure to receive inputs for the Bill when the Public Hearing for the Bill is called. In this video, the main points of the Bill are enumerated, so that the general public, and experts and stakeholders most especially, can digest and prepare their inputs.
