President Muhammadu Buhari has tasked the Bureau of Public Procurement (BPP) under the leadership of its Director-General, Mr Mamman Ahmadu, to raise the agency’s procurement standard to compete favourably with the rest of the world and get the best results in implementation standards.

The bureau is the regulatory authority responsible for the monitoring and oversight of public procurement, harmonizing the existing government policies and practices by regulating, setting standards, and developing the legal framework and professional capacity for public procurement in Nigeria.

According to a statement by Mrs Janet McDickson, BPP’s Head of Media, Mr Mamman informed the President of the Nigerian Institution of Estate Surveyors and Valuers (NIESV), Mr Johnbull Amayaevbo, that this was the task given to him by Mr Buhari.

Mr Mamman advised NIESV always to take procurement decisions that were in the best interest of Nigerians, noting that the request for BPP to intervene in inadequate provisions of funds for compensation of government contracts was noted and hoped to continue to engage them regularly to achieve targets.

The Director-General said that as professionals, the NIESV should introduce mandatory training of Continuous Professional Development (CPD) as a way to improve capacity.

“We must continue to move with the world so as not to be left behind,” he said.

On his part, the NIESV president said the need to partner with the BPP as a pivotal partner in furtherance of Real Estate practice in Nigeria had become imperative.
