*British MP praises Nigeria’s Ease of Doing Business Reforms

ABUJA (State House Report) – Vice President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, has reiterated that Nigeria can benefit from the United Kingdom in its ongoing reform of the business environment by learning from how the British resolved similar challenges.

He said this during a meeting with the newly appointed United Kingdom’s Secretary of State for International Development, Mr Alok Sharma, at the Presidential Villa.

According to him, Nigeria and the UK need to collaborate so as to solve some outstanding issues on land and property registration, noting that states like Lagos and Kano have done well with such issues.

He said, “I think one of the ways by which we could get some help is in the whole land registry concept. UK gave us quite a bit of help in establishing what was used in Lagos State land registry years ago.”
