The Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC) has ranked Gombe as the state which provides the friendliest environment for business in Nigeria.
This is contained in the council’s 2023 Subnational Ease of Doing Business (EoDB) report.
This is the second time Gombe will clinch the top spot.
The state had emerged the overall best when PEBEC released its inaugural EoDB report in March 2021.
According to the latest PEBEC report, Gombe scored 7.15 to emerge as the number one state in Nigeria where it is mostly easy to do business while Jigawa state got a weighted score of 6.88 to come second; and Sokoto state with a 6.79 score came third.
PEBEC, in a statement, said the report featured six indicators – infrastructure; secure and stable environment; transparency and accessibility of information; regulatory environment; skills and labour and economic opportunity.
