BPE PROMISE TO UPHOLD CORE VALUES FOR EFFICIENT REFORM IN THE PRIVATIZATION SECTOR

The Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE) has reiterated its commitment to uphold the core values of an efficient and credible organisation in the discharge of its mandate as the driver of the reform and privatisation programme of the Federal Government.

The Director-General, Mr Alex A. Okoh stressed this at a One-day retreat organized by the Bureau in conjunction with Klynveld Peat Marwick Goerdeler (KPMG) in Abuja titled: Accelerating Impact.

Mr Okoh maintained that the reform activities of the Bureau cut across all key sectors of the Nigerian economy

He said the retreat is one of the ways for the Bureau to reposition itself to effectively play the pivotal role as the key driver of government economic reforms programme.

In his presentation tagged ‘Towards a New BPE’, the DG said the aim of the retreat includes; analyzing key gaps and improving opportunities in BPE’s internal operating model & structure, its institutional and regulatory environment, to revalidate and reach a consensus on the strategic direction for BPE to discuss and agree on its overall strategic priorities; and key imperatives for BPE to achieve the desired future state.

The DG stressed the need for the Bureau’s staff to re-invent themselves and gear up for the next phase of the privatisation and reform programme of the Federal Government.

The KPMG team which was led by Mr Segun Sowande, noted that the objective of the retreat was to identify key opportunities in the Public Enterprises Reforms and identify strategic priorities as well as key imperatives to achieve the desired future for the Bureau. He noted that there were new and viable opportunities for the BPE to latch on and revolutionalise the economy of the nation.
