The Lagos Water Corporation Procurement Planning department has organised a one-day training for the Management Staff of the Corporation.

Speaking at the training held on Tuesday at the Corporation’s Headquarters at Ijora-Olopa, the Director-General of the Public Procurement Agency, Mr. Fatai Idowu Onofowote advised the staff to ensure strict compliance with the Procurement Planning process in all they do.

The DG said such adherence is essential in moving the Corporation forward to the level it deserves to be, urging the participants to work as a team to make things happen. 

In addition, Mr. Onofowote emphasised the need to be conversant with the planning procedures and process, stressing that it is very important to always plan before carrying out any project and ensure it goes through the Procurement Planning Committee. 

The second speaker at the training was Dr. Idowu Emiabata, who took the staff through the Payment process, Auditor checklist, and Account checklist leading to the completion of the payment process.

He also enjoined the staff to always follow due process in carrying out their projects.

The Managing Director of LWC, Engr. Mukhtaar Tijani promised that the Procurement process will be strictly adhered to by the management of the Corporation.

Similarly, the Executive Director of Operations, LWC, Engr. Mrs. Omolanke Taiwo urged the staff to take advantage of the training and brace up in their Procurement Planning process because it will no longer be business as usual. 

The Executive Director further appealed to them to cooperate with her and the MD to change the narrative of LWC from its present status.

Also, the Director of the Procurement Planning department, Mrs. Omotunde Oyedeji, gave kudos to the DG PPA, Mr. Idowu Onofowote, and his Team for their efforts and assured them that she will ensure that the Procurement process at the corporation is adhered to.
