‘Procurement professionals, others stifled in Nigeria’

The Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply Management of Nigeria (CIPSMN) has described the procurement and supply chain management as the most neglected and humiliated commercial and management field of study, saying, certified and qualified practitioners of the profession in Nigeria were continually denied the space to practice as obtained in other climes.

This according to the Registrar/Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Institute, Alhaji Muhammed Aliyu  is partly attributed to the overbearing and mid-career problems exhibited by other sector specialists who take delight in abandoning their primary area of professional calling and venturing into procurement and supply chain functions without having requisite qualifications and certification.

“All these made a mess of the importance of specialization as well as professionalism in the field of study, thereby negatively impacting the profession,” he said.

He further identified the non-inauguration of the National Council on Public Procurement as contained in the first section of the PPA 2007 and limited involvement of the technical experts produced by CIPSMN as constraints to effective and efficient procurement practice in Nigeria.
