Written by on April 27, 2022

A coalition of youth groups led by Ms Tracy Okoro have stormed the National Assembly to demand the swift passage of the Nigeria Startup Bill. Speaking on the reason for the rally, the leader of the youth coalition, Ms Tracy Okoro said that “the Nigeria startup bill is too important a bill for the National Assembly to delay its passage.

The Nigeria startupbill is a joint initiative by the presidency, the tech ecosystem, the private sector and the Ministry of Communications. The bill proposes regulations that would attract huge investments into Nigeria’s tech ecosystem, create meaningful job opportunities and provide tax revenue for government in the mid to long term.

Also speaking at the rally, Simon Darko a member of the Youth Action For Change stated that “Nigerian youths will also support law makers who support youth friendly bills. The Nigeria startup Bill is a major bill for young Nigerians with tremendous opportunities with hope that if members fail to pass this bill they should be rest assured that they would lose the support of many young Nigerians in the coming election.
