The senate has urged the Federal Government to prioritize the funding and completion of the permanent site of the National Library of Nigeria in order to mitigate losses accruable to the project.
 
This followed a motion sponsored by Senator Olugbenga Ashafa on the need to prevent further economic loss and national embarrassment arising from the failure to complete the project after 11 years.
 
In another development, the Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Okechukwu Enelamah says the Federal Government will release the second national action plan on the ease of doing business soon.
 
He disclosed this at a press conference where he also announced a two-day trade investment facilitation forum in Abuja in line with the ease of doing business initiative.
