Transitioning Leadership with a Vision for the Future

This interim measure ensures continuity in leadership until the appointment of a new Director-General is finalized.

Introducing Ayodeji Gbeleyi: A Stalwart in Finance and Governance

In a concurrent development, President Tinubu has approved the appointment of Mr. Ayodeji Ariyo Gbeleyi as the new Director-General of the BPP.

Mr. Gbeleyi, a distinguished financial expert and chartered accountant, brings a wealth of experience to the table.

A fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN) and the Chartered Institute of Taxation of Nigeria (CITN),

Mr. Gbeleyi’s expertise is well-recognized. His educational background is equally impressive, with executive program attendance at the London Business School, Harvard Kennedy School of Government, and Lagos Business School.

With over three decades of experience across various sectors, including manufacturing, FMCG, banking, telecommunications, infrastructure, and public administration,

Mr. Gbeleyi is poised to drive significant reforms. His previous roles as the board Chairman of the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria (FMBN) and Commissioner of Finance in Lagos State have prepared him for this pivotal position.

A New Chapter for the BPP Under Gbeleyi’s Leadership

The President’s expectations are clear: Mr. Gbeleyi is to utilize his vast experience and competence to fortify the BPP.

His leadership is anticipated to enhance the agency’s role as a national resource center, promoting a competitive private sector-driven economy, ensuring social accountability, and advancing corporate governance and fiduciary discipline.

This comprehensive reorganization of the BPP under President Tinubu’s directive marks a significant step towards a more efficient and transparent public procurement system in Nigeria. With Mr. Ayodeji Gbeleyi at the helm, the nation looks forward to a new chapter of governance excellence.
