``We believe government has a particular responsibility to create right and attractive environment for businesses and economic activities to thrive.

``In furtherance of this vision, we have launched the Presidential Enabling Environment Council, PEEC and Inter-Ministerial Council to oversee the efforts of government to remove various bottlenecks that stifle businesses and economic activities.

``This will create economic activities and the right enabling environment and investment climate in Nigeria.

``The secretariat will include strong private sector representation that would be led by experienced business professionals from the private sector,’’ he said.

The president maintained that his administration was committed to moving up Nigeria’s ranking of the World Bank’s ease of doing business index 20 places in first year and be in the top 100 within the next three years.
