The director-general of the Bureau of Public Procurement (BPP), Mamman Ahmadu, has identified due process as a major factor that would help Nigeria achieve its set objectives, especially in public procurement reform process.
The DG made the remarks when he played host to a Edo State Public Procurement Agency (ESPPA) delegation on a study visit to his office in Abuja. The visit is part of a weeklong procurement activities for the entourage.
Ahmadu stated that collective growth was what can “sustain our development as a nation and only due process through public procurement can deliver that result.”
He reiterated that the visit of the ESPPA would further consolidate the relationship of the states’ procurement agencies with that of the federal government for both sides to be on the same page in the reform process.
Ahmadu also claimed that the right choice was to uplift many in the country, emphasising that the public procurement process in line with transparency and accountability would change the narrative in this dispensation.
The MD/CEO, ESPPA, Henry Imogiemhe Idogun, while responding to the DG and management staff of BPP explained that to build capacity and deepen the procurement process by synergising with BPP was the right thing to do in order to prevent corruption in the country.
He emphasised that Edo State Public Procurement Agency (ESPPA) has a robust E-Procurement Unit (E-Registration) as it upholds the spirit of transparency which is the hallmark of due process because it allows for minimal human interface.
