The Nigerian Association of Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture, (NACCIMA) has tasked political leaders, especially presidential and gubernatorial candidates on the need to address challenges affecting businesses and the economy.

Speaking on the sidelines of its third quarter council meeting in Lagos, the National President of NACCIMA, Ide John Udeagbala, advocated improved trade promotion and business development.

Similarly, the association held an interactive session with the Presidential candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi, who stated his intention to use the opportunity to acquaint himself with the challenges that business operators are facing, which militate against the growth of the Nigerian economy.

Udeagbala, remarked that NACCIMA is an Association of business people, which focuses on advocacy, trade promotion and business development.

According to him, the association is also saddled with the responsibility to inform the government on the effect of its policies on the private sector and to ensure that the government continues to improve the business environment to ensure an ease of doing business.

He stated that the objective of the interactive session was to ensure that the views and concerns of the association finds its way into the political sphere, especially during this electioneering year.

In emphasizing the non-political nature of NACCIMA as the umbrella body of all the Chambers of Commerce across Nigeria, he stated that the Association is making efforts to ensure similar interactive sessions with the flag bearers of every political party.

Mr. Peter Obi while proffering potential solutions to the challenges to the economy, concluded that most of these challenges are due to human factors, which can be solved with the right leadership.
