CAC transaction portal not yet fully functional despite management assurances

Despite assurances by the management of the Corporate Affairs Commission, CAC, following protests by its customers over poor services, indications on Monday are that the situation is yet to fully normalize.

Last week, normal business at the headquarters of the Commission in Abuja was disrupted by angry customers and agents during the protest by lawyers, members of the Institute of Chartered Accounts of Nigeria, ICAN, and Chartered Institute of Secretaries of Nigeria, CISN.

The protesters had accused the management of the Commission of superintending over a system that has completely collapsed making it difficult for them to carry out normal businesses for prospective business operators.

The lawyers had said that contrary to information in the Commission’s official website that applications for reservation of business name search and business incorporation could be completed within three hours and three days respectively, none would be completed within a minimum of two months.

They blamed the situation on the total collapse of the Commission’s internet connectivity service, which resulted in the loss of valuable data and accumulation of huge backlog of unapproved application for name search availability and business name incorporation.

An Abuja-based lawyer and an accredited CAC agent, Mike Omosegbon, said more than a week after the protesters were promised by the Registrar General, Bello Mahmud, that normal service would be restored within 24, the situation appears not to witness any significant change.

Mr. Omosegbon said most customers still experience difficulties accessing the CAC website to conduct normal name search for registration of companies.

“It is still business as usual as CAC’s online registration portal is still inaccessible in spite of claims made otherwise by the Registrar-General of CAC to all Nigerians,’’ Mr. Omosegbon said on Monday.

“Hitherto, if you put in the name search, which was the first step in incorporation and registration, it would take a maximum of three days to do this. But, my application put in since August 15 is still pending,’’ he added.

Another lawyer, Akinlolu Ogunkanmi, however said that since the intervention of the management of CAC, some of the challenges have been rectified.

“The problems identified as reason for the protest have since been rectified to a large extent,” he said. “However, due to accumulation of work, CAC is still having some challenges coping with the backlog of requests pending in the system.’’

The Commission’s Director of Public Affairs, Churchill Williams, said on Monday the organisation was still carrying out the online registration of companies, while a new e-payment module was being installed for ease of its operations.

He said that the current challenges customers were facing was due to the transition to a new portal aimed at ensuring a more efficient service, adding that the new online registration system would ensure better services for the customers.

According to Mr. Williams, the protest by some lawyers last week was due to the shutdown of the organisation’s portal by a former IT consultant awarded the contract to manage the commission’s software.

He said though the vendor has since been paid part of the money the CAC was owing the company, its management still went ahead to shut down the system.

The CAC spokesperson assured that all issues about the problems currently being experienced in the doing business the Commission would be resolved latest by the end of webmaster

    Jesus says ‘ask, seek and knock’, Prophet Aribisala says, don’t seek, just ask. Whose message shall you believe?

    • Romberg: You are a liar!

      • Romberg

        These are your words uncle:

        True believers never seek things: only unbelievers do so. Believers ask for things. Things come to us just by the asking.

        • Did I or did I not say seek God and his kingdom and his righteousness? If I did, how can you say I said don’t seek. You are a liar!

          • Romberg

            You are the liar. Ask, seek and knock refers to fundamental principles of prayer. When I ask God for a job, I have to seek the job by applying to places. After seeking, I have to knock by attending interviews and competing for the job. I won’t ask for a job and sit at home or the church seeking the Kingdom of God. I know your response will be that your comments are philosophical, but you know exactly how much truth you’d meant to retain in your argument.

            It is always in your attitude to lie. The other time you said Pastor Adeboye referred to church building when he said he has houses in 188 countries. You know you lied: he was talking of houses of church members who would love to have him under their roof.

            Nigerians also know how much you lied with your political commentaries. I don’t have to remind you this, do I?

          • Romberg: No red herrings. You are a liar. You said I wrote don’t seek. But I wrote that believers should seek God. You are a liar! When you learn to speak the truth, then you and I can have a civil discussion. In the meantime, I have no time for liars like you.

          • Romberg

            Run. Coward!

          • Stay, liar!

          • Romberg

            I know I will be the subject of your article next week. But if your words truly bite, Buhari would have reduced to a crumb.

          • Romberg

            These are your words:

            True believers never seek things: only unbelievers do so. Believers ask for things. Things come to us just by the asking.

            What else do you mean by this other than:
            believers only ask, they do not seek….things only come to ‘believers’ by asking. You wrote that not me. I hope you will own up. Right here you have shown that you are the liar not me.

          • Tell some more lies, liar!

          • Romberg

            More content from the same article of faith – faith, really?
            Seeking and finding

            There is a big difference between asking and receiving and seeking and finding. What we ask for and receive is different from what we seek and find. We ask for things and receive things. But we seek God and his kingdom and receive the Lord himself.

            True believers never seek things: only unbelievers do so. Believers ask for things. Things come to us just by the asking. But unbelievers seek things in order to get them.

          • Ignorant Romberg: Jesus says ask, seek and knock. Was he referring to God or to man? O ye of little understanding. This is the nonsense you wrote. “When I ask God for a job, I have to seek the job.” So Jesus was giving us principles about seeking jobs. What rubbish! My articles of faith are beyond the likes of you.

            “If there is anything hidden about our message, it is hidden only to someone who is lost. The god who rules this world has blinded the minds of unbelievers. They cannot see the light, which is the good news about our glorious Christ, who shows what God is like.” (2 Corinthians 4:3-4).

          • Romberg

            So you can cite Paul’s epistle? The same man you watered down in your poor writing for several weeks? I know you for too long: you lie again and again. As I indicated previously, your simplistic line of defence is that my understanding is poor, but I make bold to say that it is not as poor as yours. I have only used the job scenario above as an illustration. How will you illustrate your blatant goof? ‘Seek the kingdom of God’, ‘believers don’t seek, its only the unbelievers that …seek’, whatever that means.
            When you ask God for anything in prayer, the clear biblical principle in this is that we ask, seek and knock. Seeking the kingdom of God is a different thing. Can you receive the kingdom of God by praying for it? What then is the essence of rapture if that is possible? When we seek the kingdom of God, we loose our anxiety for worldly things. This is God’s own principle, NOT your article of faith that seek to shred God’s own principle.
            Perhaps, you have said it all: your mess of a message is not meant for me. Maybe you should keep it for your disciples and not for everyone to see.

    Spiritual laws of prayer; Demonic fellowship with Falsehood and Corruption. The Aribisala connection.

    • Sour grapes!

      • Amir

        Aribisala, PDP pastor and (Sunday) Christian by T-shirt badge. Pre-paid falsehood peddler. Your brand of Christianity reminds all of Simon the sorcerer who wanted to pay bribe to acquire the ‘holy spirit’! You inflicted Jonathan with the spirit of failure and disgrace. Abati’s midnight penny pot of corruption and falsehood. You are prominent in the kingdom of darkness and manipulation of facts.

        • Amir, I have the liberty to support whoever I like, without any apologies to the likes of you. I am not a pastor and I don’t belong to the PDP. Your Buhari was defeated by Jonathan by a landslide in 2011. He was also a serial loser for 12 years. Stop making too much noise. You goons are not the first people to support someone who wins an election and you won’t be the last. Since coming to power, your Buhari has been one big failure. He has run an unconstitutional one-man government since May 29. No economic policy: no foreign policy. Just anti-corruption noise in spite of winning a corrupt election. Stop peddling falsehood. I don’t know Abati. I have never met him nor corresponded with him. I held no public office and nobody paid me or pays me to write my views. Which demon in you told you I ever received or paid a bribe? You surely need deliverance.

          • Romberg

            I love this part: “Since coming to power, your Buhari has been one big failure. He has run an unconstitutional one-man government since May 29. No economic policy: no foreign policy. Just anti-corruption noise in spite of winning a corrupt election”.
            You are an incurable critique!

          • Amir

            Don’t mind the prepaid coward. He promoted a candidate he does not consider worthy of his time and vote. Similarly every Sunday he rants about Christianity and Christ that he does not even believe in. It is not only by their fruits, also by their planting, we shall know them. A hate obsessed, well educated Caiaphas!

          • Romberg

            I truly hope he will man up and stay up to his questions.

          • You are a liar!

          • Romberg

            Is this all you have got say?

          • You are of the father of lies!

          • Romberg

            Are you saying the quote above is not your own comment? I am struggling hard to understand you.

          • Romberg

            No qualms. You are the lying father then.

          • Amir

            You are a PDP pastor, not a pastor in any reasonable sense. You are an agent of falsehood, a t-shirt Christian. Deliver yourself first from the incubus of hate filled propaganda into a life of truth which Christ represents. Your so called liberty is evidently bondage to the leaders of darkness that foisted a clearly timid and corrupt mind on the nation. You remind all of what went wrong with man!

          • Good for you.

    You are a liar!

    • Romberg

      You are the liar Sir
