    The business has been registered, now the problem is to collect certificates of registration


    Since we were called to for signatury, nothing else is being done and no communication


    I have been trying to get in touch with my aggregator since I submitted the form 29th October 2020 through on but he or have never picked the phone and never reply my Whatsapp message.
    i want to know the situation of the form submitted since 29th October 2020 through online

    Thank you.

  4. The date for registration should be extended and also the number of interested candidates should be increased pls

  5. The FCT AGGREGATOR PHONE number is not available on CAC portal. we need an answer.
    The slot shouldn’t be given to their relatives or should we pay before we register? What a mess!

  6. The number of Kwara aggregator has never gone through for one day. His name is Opeyemi. This is a sure way to make sure we don’t get registered.

    This is an absolute nonsensical thing. The 2 aggregators for Lagos are useless. The first number has been switched off since inception while the second number, the person in charge is fast to always cut it. Who the fools and idiot are selected as reps for Lagos? Abegg you guys should find something to do about it. Besides, Lagos aggregators have no email attached to their names. Fraud is the 2nd name for this country

  8. good afternoon,

    I preferred everything being done online, as getting the aggregate is proving difficult.

    They can process every thing online and send our certificate too, or we can have a designated place for pickup.

    Also, they notify should any whose cert is out in order to avoid a queue.

    Thank You.

    Good development, But the registration process should be more efficient as accessing the aggregators is proving difficult in some states.

  10. Insensitivity on part of this present regime. Just nonsensical in 2020 to appoint single individual with a phone line to coordinate an entire state with over six thousand probable registrants. Why must incompetent government officials insist in doing things the old manual way. Online automated registration was what I used last year for a business name.
    I didn’t have to see or call anyone until it was time to submit the hard copy at the Lagos Alausa office.
    Now this inept regime wants me and over six thousand people to be calling one line before registering.

    Just politicizing the already fraudulent process.

    Good initiative and encouragement of Nigeria youth for self reliance and a strategy of poverty reduction.
