PEBEC Stages Play To Honour MSMEs, Reform Champions

The Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC) has unveiled plans to honour men and women who have helped in the reform and policies delivery on ease of doing business in the country.

Dr Jumoke Oduwole, PEBEC Secretary and Special Advisor to the President on Ease of Doing Business, who said this at a news briefing in Abuja, said that PEBEC would stage a play, titled: “The Future is here”, to celebrate these champions.

She said that the play, which would come in two segments was meant to celebrate Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) relevant government agencies’ officials that were helping in the policies delivery.

The presidential aide said 4000 tickets  would be given free to  watch the play, which would be held in Abuja on Oct.1 and Oct. 2, at the NAF centre as part of Independence Day celebration.

Oduwole said that the event was meant to appreciate and make all who had contributed in delivering the reforms so far accomplished in the ease of doing business interventions, relax with their families and friends.

According to her, the PEBEC was launched in 2016, and has been working for the last six years on enabling environments across the country on ease of doing business.

“Now, in that six year period, we’ve done a number of reforms for small and medium sized enterprises.

“And, men and women who have delivered these reforms are none other than our public and civil service across ministries, departments and agencies at all arms and levels of government.

“So, we have federal agencies, we work with state governments, and local governments, we also work with all arms of government, we work with the National Assembly and with the judiciary,” she said.

She said that the agency had worked with all arms and levels of government to achieve its mandate of ease of doing business in the country.

She said that the secretariat had decided to celebrate the champion to mark the Independent Day whereby they could relax with their families and friends.

“And the reason why we’re doing this is that we feel it’s important to celebrate the men and women who have delivered the reforms that we’ve been able to accomplish so far, in the ease of doing business intervention.

“We also want to celebrate our indefatigable entrepreneurs, the micro small and medium sized enterprises who have been working tirelessly to make a living and edge their living through entrepreneurship across the country,” she said.

According to her, a shorter version of the PEBEC play was premiered last December at its 5th anniversary and it was very well received by the audience was also streamed online.

But we felt it was important to redo the play to do to make the play publicly available. So we’ve selected Independence Day weekend to celebrate men and women, the public and civil servants who have delivered the reforms are reform champions,” she said.
According to her `the PEBEC Play is a gamut of business reforms designed to create awareness, further communicate and engage our target audience in celebration of Nigeria’s Independence Day.

The future is here” focuses on the narrative of a future that we can collaboratively create, A future riding on Government’s reforms, The future of our dream! This future that we seek! The future where Government numerous reforms smile at everyone; A future with no artificial barricade; A future where everyone can do business with ease A future built by the strength of our hands and by the resolve of the collective will of the people! One people one nation Handmaids of God’s creation the future is here!
“The future is here is an excellent musical that creates awareness for Governments reforms to create an enabling environment for MSME’s and the resolve of the people, a new tribe to do what is right,” she said.
