PEBEC explains reason for report kiosks at MMIA, others

THE Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC) has said that the reason it installed and  commissioned the Report Kiosks  last Friday at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA) in Lagos is among others to resolve issues encountered dealing with Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs).

In a statement signed by Senior Special Assistant to the President on Industry, Trade and Investment (PEBEC) Secretary, Dr. Jumoke Oduwole the app was launched on 25 June 2018 at a special PEBEC meeting after a 6-month preparation period and will serve as a self-service terminal, with customer service representatives to promote the PEBEC. Report app, an official public service website for complaints and feedback on the service delivery standards of select MDAs.

The app has piloted with nine of the PEBEC priority MDAs (PPM); Citizens and Business Department, Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC), Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority(NCAA), Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Nigerian Police Force (NPF), Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) and Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON).

The app according to Dr Oduwole is important because it:

  • Makes it easy for anyone to resolve issues encountered when dealing with MDAs;
  • Strengthens federal enforcement, service delivery and public protection efforts on a national level (through filing a complaint);
  • Helps identify trends and tracks the issues that matter to Nigerian citizens.

The app includes a feedback mechanism for MDAs, which have assigned administrators to handle complaints according to pre-agreed service level agreements (SLA). All administrators have been trained on how to handle complaints and feedback from the app within a 72-hour timeline. On June 27 2018, the Federal Executive Council also approved a directive on strict compliance by all MDAs to respond to complains within 72 hours.

This web-based application is to foster transparency and efficiency in furtherance to the Executive Order 001 (EO1). Recall that the EO1 was signed on 18 May 2017 by Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo (SAN), then Acting President to promote transparency and efficiency in the business environment. To foster a robust monitoring and evaluation process (M&E), EO1 mandated all MDAs to submit monthly reports to the office of the Head of Service and SERVICOM.

The Enabling Business Environment Secretariat tracks compliance of select MDAs with EO1 directives. On June 25 2018, a 12-month anniversary report, tracking the performance of PPMs, was presented at the special PEBEC meeting in the presence of private sector stakeholders.

The PEBEC.Report kiosks have been placed in Lagos and Abuja international airports to promote the app and encourage private sector to give feedback about their airport and travel experience. The app is being scaled up to include more MDAs and provide wider coverage.
