Eberechi Okereke revealed further that about 34,000 youths trained and equipped with modern technology solutions, including young lawyers and accountants, were already on board and ready to be accredited with the CAC as agents.


To ensure the success of the project, Minister Olawande solicited the Commission’s support in ensuring seamless registration services for the Ministry.


In addition to integration with their portal, he stressed the need for enlightenment as well as short-term class sessions for their prospective agents.


Responding, the Registrar-General of CAC, Ishaq Hussaini Magaji, assured of the Commission’s support and readiness to partner with the Ministry to realise the objective.


The CAC boss therefore pledged immediate assistance by providing competent personnel to appropriately guide them through the process.
