Engr. Emeka Muomah Ezeh, holds the record of leading the institutionalisation of the Public Procurement reform through leading roles in the creation and in heading the structure responsible for the growth and sustenance of the reform, which is the BPP. This achievement has led to increased internalisation of the public procurement process, the attendant rise in the adoption of methods in the expenditure procedure and a more focused budget implementation course. In demonstrating his commitment to the preservation of his integrity and the improvement in the nation’s public service standards, Engr. Ezeh has not just stepped on toes but has incurred the wrath of vested interests, while losing a good number of friends. As a stickler for principles, purist and one who subscribes to high moral and religious values, he has crossed the paths of many, but remains justified that he is doing the right thing, no matter whose ox is gored. Engr. Ezeh has thus far saved the Federal government over 2.2 billion dollars from the Bureau’s reviews of public contracts due for award by Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) since 2009, through the institutionalization of a painstaking process of vetting and approval of contracts due for award.
