The Corporate Affairs Commission, CAC, has said it has no plans to downsize its workforce.
CAC Registrar-General, Alhaji Garba Abubakar explained that workers would not be sacked because they are functional and relevant.
Abubakar, who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, on Wednesday in Abuja, said lawyers were involved in the approval of the registration process to ensure that those who carried out their jobs manually did not lose their jobs.
He said: ”Before now, lawyers were saddled with the responsibility of approving new registration and post-registration activities of the Commission, but non-lawyers are now being trained for the job.
”The second one has to do with the process and time it took to approve a registration; having more people working has reduced the time circle.
“If before now, we had 50 people approving the process in 48 hours and another 50 is added making it 100, it will help reduce the time to 24 hours.
“Everyone that is a staff of CAC has an idea of what it takes to register and the objectives or requirements for registration.
“Before the new system, staffers were scanning documents, entering data among others for lawyers to approve.”
He said the Commission had trained staff members to become proficient in their duties to fast track the registration process.
