The Lagos State Public Procurement Agency has restated its commitment to transparency, accuracy and accountability in all government transactions.
Its Director-General Fatai Onafowote, said the agency is statute-barred to operate as mandated by the Lagos State Public Procurement Law.
Onafowote spoke in a statement to clear the air on certain information posted on the agency’s website.
He noted that the information had been misinterpreted due to misunderstandings arising from a lack of clarity, which had triggered unintended misinterpretations.
The statement reads: “We regret that specific details, particularly concerning the descriptions of government dealings, may have inadvertently led to confusion, impacting both governmental entities and corporate partners providing services to the state.
“This arose largely from the lack of detailed descriptions in the project information, which has inadvertently led to confusion in the public space.
“We empathize with public concerns and sincerely apologize for any distress caused. We never intend to cast doubt or cause misunderstandings that might tarnish the reputation of respected individuals and organisations involved in these transactions.
