Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo- Olu, has underscored the critical role members of the Business Community must play in facilitating the delivery of Government’s programmes and projects to the citizenry.


The Governor stated this yesterday while delivering a keynote address at a forum organized for members of the Business Community by the Lagos State Public Procurement Agency, PPA, held at Sheraton Hotels, Ikeja, Lagos.


The Governor, who was represented by the State Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget, Mr. Sam Egube, said it was imperative for the State Government to regularly interact and exchange ideas with members of the Business Community. 


He also stressed that the present administration would remain faithful to due process in the public procurement process so that the resources available to Government could be judiciously deployed to the myriad of developmental needs of the State.


He also declared the unwavering commitment of the state government to the full implementation of the Procurement Law, that will guarantee transparency, accountability and value for money in public procurement.


Sanwo- Olu appealed to members of the Business Community to continue to support and cooperate with the State Government for the successful implementation of the Procurement Law and other policies and programmes of the State Government.



Meanwhile, the Lagos State Government has paid the sum of N1.514 billion accrued pension rights into the Retirement Savings Accounts, RSA, of another batch of 426 retirees from its Public Service

While thanking the retirees for contributing their quota and making a meaningful impact during their service years to the State, Onanuga advised them to do things in moderation as well as indulge in healthy activities in order to live a longer life
