Nigeria Startup Act: ICAN, NBA others critical to implementation – Buki Osunkeye

The co-founder of Pora app and Azaria Lagos e-commerce app, Buki Osunkeye, has said that bodies such as the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN), the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) and stakeholders are key to the successful implementation of the Nigeria Startup Act and should be carried along.

Osunkeye made the call during the Nairametrics webinar with the theme: “Nigeria Startup Act and Tech Investment: Exploring Possibilities” held on Saturday. According to her, all the stakeholders that interact with the startup community must be fully involved and informed about the Act.

She noted that the members of ICAN, NBA, and others act as middlemen in setting up startups, hence, they would also need to be properly informed about the Act and its implementation.
