Governor Fayemi, of Ekiti State has said the setting up of the Public Procurement Law reform was an indication that his government was not afraid of probe. He said the procurement law was purposely established for all transactions to be exhibited on Ekiti website, for thorough financial scrutiny .
Governor Fayemi said all the contacts being awarded by government are now being displayed on the state’s website, for the public to assess and scrutinize to embrace open contracting culture and allow the citizens to take ownership of government.
Fayemi said this in Ado Ekiti, over the weekend at a three-day Public Procurement workshop tagged “Promoting transparency and accountability in public education expenditure through open contracting” which was organised by Public Private Development Centre (PPDC), in partnership with MacArthur Foundation.
Commissioner for Budget, Hon. Femi Ajayi, who represented Governor Fayemi said Ekiti had keyed into open contracting policy and complying with fiscal regulation via all- inclusive budgeting that will drive socio- economic policy, for radical development. “We knew that for government to have a policy that will be workable and transform the economic landscape based on peculiarities, everybody must be involved .
Hon Femi said Ekiti doesn’t joke with budget process. No government jokes with budgeting and transform the economy, that was why Governor Fayemi signed to OGP. “We are not afraid of probe and financial scrutiny, because we have nothing to hide.
