The Managing Director/Chief Executive, Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation, Mr Bello Hassan, has said the corporation will continue to build capacity in procurement processes.
Hassan spoke at a two-day capacity building workshop for management staff of the corporation in Lagos on Saturday.
He said, “In furtherance to remain a learning and growth institution to keep abreast with the development in the procurement processes such as the recently published upward review of approval threshold and its implications on procurement, the NDIC found it necessary to hold this retreat.
Hassan said the corporation had maintained a cordial and progressive engagement with BPP over the years in different capacities which had empowered the NDIC to discharge its mandate more efficiently and effectively to satisfy its stakeholders’ expectations.
According to him, on a yearly basis, the employees of NDIC attend various BPP capacity building programmes offered at ABU Zaria and FUT, Owerri, and the corporation has a total number of 10 certified staff in the procurement department as of December, 2021.
