By the new Companies and Allied Matters Act 1990, a single person can now start, promote, register and own a private company, by being the sole shareholder and director of his/her private company. Before now, a company must have at least 2 persons as shareholders and directors.

This change is believed to positively affect the ease of doing business in Nigeria. Hopefully, it will move up Nigeria’s ranks 131 out of 190 countries on the World Bank Doing Business Index.
