AAE Nigeria's new legal status

The Registrar of Companies in Nigeria finally granted non-profit Non-governmental Organisation (NGO) status to the AFRICAN ASSOCIATION OF ENTREPRENEURS OF NIGERIA (AAEN). This new legal status would help the local chapter to open a bank account, and access other essential government services within the Nigerian Territory.

Through the voluntary donations of the founding members of the chapter in Nigeria, the sum of N200,000 was raised for registration with Corporate Affairs Commission.

"The AAEN project is still viable if we can get funds for procurement of office equipment and renting of office accommodation. We hope to attract more members, supporters and partners though an awareness raising drive scheduled for November.

We are grateful to AAE Ghana for their help in getting the chapter to this stage." 

Member Support Volunteer, Mr. Raimi Lukman.

Business Seminar Presentation

On Saturday, June 15, 2013  Mr. Raimi Lukman, AAE Member Support Volunteer for Nigeria presented at a Business Seminar organised by MSSN Oworo Branch Lagos Nigeria on  at University of Lagos, Guest House, Committee Room.

In his presentation, Mr. Lukman noted that businesses are hindered in Nigeria by several operational and institutional constraints (OICs), which include: limited access to loans due to lack collaterals, insufficient managerial acumen, infrastructural deficiencies especially electricity, and dubious legal systems. Other identified constraints include: mind-set to remain informal, inability to afford new technology, unfriendly tax system, local markets, lack of incentives from governments, corruption, difficult business registration, ineffective partnership among stakeholders in the region, lack of succession plan, inadequate legal framework, and dying culture of entrepreneurship.

 According to him, the chain reactions of all the constraints have created very weak businesses, that cannot create jobs, add value to national GDPs nor able to improve the quality of lives of the citizens.
