The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan on Monday said the nation’s public procurement procedures was short of world best practices, saying the Act will receive holistic overhaul.
Lawan also frowned at the contract performances across board saying “From stage of bidding to mobilisation, costing of any government contracts must be uniform in order to avoid imbalances and embarrassment in the processes.”
He said this when he played host to the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha ,who led seven other Federal Permanent Secretaries to his office.
According to Lawan, Nigerians always stand disadvantaged with such anomalies in the procurement process.
He said there was the need to review the Public Procurement Act.
Lawan assured that the Senate was ready to work closely with other arms of government and the Nigerian people to accelerate infrastructural and socio-economic developments across the country.
Earlier, Boss Mustapha applauded the President of the Senate for starting on a vibrant mood.
