FCTA trains 50 newly recruited procurement officers
The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA), on Monday, trained about 50 newly recruited staff of the administration on procurement processes and procedures.
Speaking during the ceremony in Abuja, the Director of Procurement Department, Mr Ibrahim Gusau, said the training was meant to equip the new staff on the basic procurement process.
According to him: “We are having this induction/training programme for our new staff, so as to equip them on the basic procurement process. They would know what they will do when they get to their various areas of posting.
“We also want to train them so that they don’t go there to tarnish the image of the authorities. We want to make sure that they are fully trained and are ready to take the exams.” He added.
Mr Gusau, therefore, advised them to be law-abiding, serious on the job and to consult higher authorities when the need arises, adding that the new staff would be posted to their new offices immediately after their training.
In an interview with newsmen, one of the trainees, Steve Omaku, said they have been expecting and waiting for such training for a long time, adding that the experience has been very informative and educative.
