As part of effort to reorganize and improve the agency’s efficiency and transparency, President Bola Tinubu has directed Mr. Mamman Ahmadu to step down as head of the Bureau of Public Procurement (BPP).

Presidential spokesperson, Chief Ajuri Ngelale, said on Saturday that the Director-General is to hand over to the most senior officer in the Bureau, pending the appointment of a new Director-General.

A statement by Ngelale said: “This is part of a larger reorganization effort in the public procurement system to reposition the agency for greater efficiency and transparency.

“The Director-General is to hand over to the most senior officer in the Bureau, pending the appointment of a new Director-General.”

President Tinubu expressed gratitude to Mamman Ahmadu for his dedication and service and extended his best wishes for Ahmadu’s future pursuits.

Also, the President has appointed Ayodeji Ariyo Gbeleyi as the new Director-General of the Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE), effective immediately.

Gbeleyi is a distinguished financial expert and chartered accountant recognized for his exceptional contributions to the field. He holds fellowships with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN) and the Chartered Institute of Taxation of Nigeria (CITN).

He has also completed executive programs at the esteemed London Business School, Harvard Kennedy School of Government, and Lagos Business School, further solidifying his credentials as a seasoned professional.

The newly appointed head of BPP brings a wealth of experience spanning over three decades across various industries, including manufacturing, FMCG, investment and commercial banking, project finance, telecommunications, infrastructure, and public administration, demonstrating his extensive expertise and versatility.

He was the board chairman of the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria (FMBN) and commissioner of finance in Lagos State from 2013 to 2015.

The statement said: “The President expects the new Director-General to bring his vast experience and competence to bear in this role to strengthen the agency as the national resource centre for capacity building and sustenance of reforms through the promotion of a competitive private sector-driven economy, ensuring social accountability and efficient deployment of public resources, as well as advancing effective corporate governance and fiduciary discipline in the public and private sectors.”
