Senate urges Jonathan to inaugurate National Council on Public Procurement



The campaign for due process and accountability the nation’s public procurement process score the bull’s eye on Wednesday as Nigeria’s senate urged President Goodluck  Jonathan to inaugurate the National Council on Public Procurement now!

society groups led by  PRADIN have been the vanguard  those pointing the dangers  the absence a council.Surprisingly, the presidency seems to be foot-dragging on the matter despite its repeated pledge to ensure due process and accountability.Ffeelers from experts suggest bulk the contracts awarded by the FG without the council place so far  are patently illegal .

A recent attempt by presidential to defend why the council has not been constituted drew a trenchant response from Mohammed B. Attah who pointed out the blunders in Abati’s .

Senators today lead by Senate President  David Mark decried the fact council which ought to have been constituted  five ago is still non- existent.

Constituting the council will form a pillar in the  battle to check corruption  in contract award process.And is even amazing to note FG has conveniently ignored this which is vital to the regime’s much- vaunted anti corruption battle.
