SENSITIZING COMMUNITIES AND STAKEHOLDERS IN DELTA STATE ON THE PUBLIC PROCUREMENT ACT
News from Deltans.com of October 28th, 2011.
ASABA – Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta has urged the Bureau for Public Procurement (BPP) to extend its activities to the private sector.
Uduaghan gave the advice while opening the third phase of the sensitization workshop on “Public Procurement Act” for stakeholders in the South-South Zone in Asaba.
The governor who was represented by the Commissioner for Economic Planning, Mr Kenneth Okpara, said that procurement practice would have a single identity in the country if the private sector was carried along.
He said the evolvement of the BPP Act in the country was a welcome development, saying “it has brought dynamism and credibility to our procurement process.
“I have been following closely the activities of the Bureau for Public Procurement in the discharge of its duties, I must commend you, especially in the areas of saving you have made to government in procurement.
“However, I wish to advise that the bureau should extend its activities to the private sector so that with time, procurement practice would have a single identity in Nigeria,’’he said.
He said that Delta had keyed into the Federal Government’s vision inn the procurement agenda, adding that steps had been taken to establish a commission that would drive the process in the state.
“It is therefore worthy to note that you are organizing this stakeholders meeting at this point in time.
“We like to plead with you for technical support in the training of our personnel when we have set up the commission,’’ Uduaghan said.
Mr George-Hill Anthony, the Zonal Coordinator for the South South, in a remark, said the sensitization programme on the Public Procurement Act had been carried out in five state in the zone.
He said the team had visited Rivers, Edo, Bayelsa and Cross Rivers, adding that it was now time to sensitize the people of Delta on their right in terms of public procurements.
“We are here to sensitize the people, especially the youths on what it entails in knowing your rights in terms of public procurement.
“Any process of government that excludes the young people is faulty, we need to encourage the youths and everybody into understanding what public procurement means, ‘Anthony said.
Meanwhile the Chairman of the occasion, Chief Anthony Okoro, charged the people to take their destiny in their own hands.
According to him, 99 per cent of government spending is on procurement and it is an important issue that affects the people’s life.
“We have to take our destiny in our hands and for everything that happens in the government we must have a law to back it up.
“And with the Public Procurement Act passed into law since 2007, it is the people that will change the story of the country,” he said.
Also in a remark, the Director General, BPP, Mr Emeka Ezeh, represented by Dr James Akanmu, said the procurement Act was all about time management, quality work and good governance.
He said the Act was a tool for fighting corruption and that it encouraged fairness in contract prices and transparency.
“This sensitization is to interact with the people on how they can make things work better in the country. I therefore call for the full participation of everyone,’’Ezeh said.
Reports say that participants were drawn from the South-South zone.
