In line with current realities of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Corporate
Affairs Commission has barred customers from physically visiting its
office premises in Abuja and Lagos to carry out official transactions.
According to a public notice released through its verified Twitter
accounts on Thursday, the CAC said customers would be required to send
and receive documents from the commission through designated courier
companies from August 10 to August 31, 2020.
It promised to set up a mechanism to allow customers send and receive documents via email.
The statement said, “With this, the physical submission of original
documents before collection of pre-incorporation certificates will be
“The documents uploaded online by the customer and approved for the registration would suffice.”
It said this new order would place a responsibility on customers to make
sure that their documents were signed by the person’s name appearing in
any transaction they were seeking.
