BPP Conducts Training Workshop for UNN Council and Principal Officers on Public Procurement
The objective of the training, held at the UNN Liaison Office in Wuse 2 in Abuja, was to acquaint the participants with the provisions of the Act, to improve their delivery on procurement outputs.
In his closing remarks, the UNN VC, Professor Barth O. Okolo, thanked BPP for the groundbreaking workshop.
Taking a cue from Engr. Ezeh’s presentation, in which he underscored the status of the Vice Chancellor of the University as the Accounting Officer and custodian of the institution’s procurement system, the Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of the UNN Council, Mr. Emmanuel C. Ukala, SAN, stressed his commitment to selfless service. After receiving a pack of BPP publications, he declared that, in the first year of his tenure, he would not receive any sitting allowances. He appealed to members of the Council not to interfere in the institution’s procurement operations, but to restrict themselves to provision of oversight functions to the process.
