More than four dozen federal permanent secretaries are expected in Calabar, the Cross River State capital in the first week of February for a retreat to enhance their capacity on issues bordering on procurement.

The present government in Nigeria won elections on the promise to tackle corruption which has bedevilled the country with fraudulent procurement processes being identified by different investigations as the major exit point for trillions of Naira from government coffers to private pockets.

And, the annual retreat according to Mr. Nduibusi Osuji, the permanent secretary in charge of Service Policies and Strategies in the office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation is aimed at tackling issues associated with this.

“The essence of this retreat is to increase the capacity of the federal permanent secretaries with respect to procurement issues as well as expose them to some issues that will enhance service delivery in our dear country Nigeria.

“We have used this opportunity as well to extend invitation to our colleagues, permanent secretaries in the state to participate in this very important retreat,” said Mr. Osuji while addressing journalists in Calabar.

The retreat will hold from February 1 to February 4, 2018 with visits to the Obong of Calabar, Ndidem of the Quas, Marina Resort as well as the Slave Museum in the itinerary.

The event will be declared open by Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River at the Calabar International Convention Center.
