Institute deplores quality of Nigeria’s policy makers

•Says Over 60% Unqualified

The Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply Management of Nigeria (CIPSMN) has declared that over 60 per cent of those currently making policies and procedures for Nigeria were supposed to be somewhere else.

Registrar/CEO of the institute, Alhaji M.J. Aliyu, who made this known during the Batch ‘B’ Mandatory Proficiency Development Programme (MPDP) in Abuja, warned that unless the country adopts global best practices, things would remain the same for a long time to come.

Speaking at the three-day training programme for professional CIPSMN members, Aliyu said the country has for long placed emphasis on a dysfunctional educational system that places more emphasis on academic certificates than technical and professional ability to cope with its specific problems.

He lamented that country’s procurement system was hampered in terms of practices, policies, procedures and professionalism, among others, maintaining that the system was characterised with poorly developed policies and procedures by unprofessional persons, which increases the problems.

According to him, a good number of government officials, particularly policy makers in the procurement and supply chain, were not bothered about enhancing commitment to diligent work for the benefits of the citizenry but continue to misunderstand the major objectives of a professionalised civil service at the expense of a sustainable national business process improvement and productivity.
