Procurement Agency Has Enhanced Govt Transactions – Lagos HOS

The Lagos State Head of Service, Mr. Hakeem Muri-Okunola, has declared that the Lagos State Public Procurement Agency (PPA) has been playing a major role as an intermediary in the conduct of Government business, particularly in the drive towards increased accountability, competitiveness, inclusiveness and transparency in the public procurement processes of the State Government

The Head of Service, represented by Mrs. Toyin Machado-Onanuga, Director, Public Service Standards and Performance, in the Public Service Office, Office of the Head of Service, stated this at the opening ceremony of a three-day Procurement Planning Clinic organised by the Lagos State Public Procurement Agency (PPA) for Accounting Officers and Procurement Officers in the MDAs of the State, held at the Public Service Staff Development Centre (PPDC), Magodo, Lagos.

Muri-Okunola further noted that the Agency had left no one in doubt that it was fully prepared to achieve its mission “to ensure a transparent, inclusive, sustainable and value-driven public procurement system that supports the Government’s developmental goals and engenders public confidence”.

While stressing the need for the proper alignment of the Procurement Plans of MDAs with the provisions of the approved budget so that the overall goals and objectives of the State Government as envisioned in the budget can be achieved, he noted that the activities of the Agency were in tandem with the drive of the present administration in the State towards achieving a 21st-Century Economy status as contained in the six-point T.H.E.M.E.S Agenda.

The Head of Service, however, appealed to Accounting Officers and other Officials in the Procurement Planning Committees of MDAs to work in synergy with the Agency, through the Procurement Officers in the various MDAs, for the objectives of setting up the Agency as a regulatory body for public procurement to be fully achieved. 

He expressed appreciation to Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu for providing the leadership required for continued growth and development of the State.

Also speaking at the ceremony, the Chairman of the Governing Board of the Agency who is also the Commissioner for Finance in the State, Dr. Rabiu Olowo, urged Procurement Officers to work and act like core professionals in handling the procurement functions of their MDAs.

Dr. Olowo, who was represented at the occasion by Mr. Olujimi Ige, Permanent Secretary, Debt Management Office of the State, stated that a major change had just been introduced into the public procurement process in the State, stressing that all projects captured in the Appropriation Law and included in the Procurement Plan will guide  procurement process.

He further noted that the new approval process had put a greater responsibility on Procurement Officers, therefore, they must take up  the challenge as agents for positive change to fast-track the process.

Earlier, the General Manager of the Lagos State Public Procurement Agency, Mr. Fatai Idowu Onafowote, explained that the Procurement Planning Clinic is organised annually at the beginning of  the year to examine, scrutinise, review or amend the Procurement Plan of each of the MDAs  of the State with the aim of ensuring that it reflects the provisions contained in the approved budget.

The General Manager pointed out that the successful implementation of the budget substantially depends on the soundness of the procurement plans of the MDAs, noting that the preparation of documents must, therefore, be undertaken with the commitment of staff saddled with the responsibility.

Mr. Onafowote also disclosed that following the successful deployment of e-Procurement Solution Modules in the procurement processes of three Ministries in the State – Health, Education as well as Works and Infrastructure last year, the Agency was ready to deploy the Modules in nine more MDAs by the end of February 2020 to further enhance the State Government’s drive towards the ease of doing business with contractors, suppliers and service providers.

Governor Of Lagos State, At The Presentation Of Year 2020 Budget Proposal






Let me on this momentous occasion of my first appearance before you, Mr. Speaker and

Honorable Members of the Lagos State House of Assembly, start by congratulating all of you, new and returning members, on your well-deserved victory at the polls, and on your efforts and achievements over the last six months in office.


In the same vein, I must thank you all, once again, for the cooperation we have received and enjoyed since we came to office. You handled the screening of nominees into the Lagos State Executive Council with promptness and seriousness; followed by the commitment you showed when we requested a reordering of the 2019 Budget, to better align with our development agenda. It is our candid prayer that this cordial and productive relationship will continue to be the norm throughout our tenure. Mr. Speaker and Honorable Members, in my Inauguration Speech on May 29, 2019, I declared to the good people of Lagos State: “While Lagos glimmers as a beacon of progressive and quality governance, our nation now undergoes a historic battle to establish progressive and just governance. Lagos must again rise and help lead this nation to fuller progress and to a closer realization of the greatness that exists within all Nigerians. This inauguration symbolizes such an awakening.” This quote sets the tone for my presentation to you today, and by extension captures the essence of the 2020 Lagos State Budget. We all came into office with a clear and indisputable mandate to govern our people diligently and conscientiously; to serve them to the best of our ability.


We were elected on the basis of a robust six-pillar development agenda; PROJECT T.H.E.M.E.S., which sets out in a concise manner, the priorities of our great party and our administration. Traffic

Management & Transportation, Health & Environment, Education & Technology, Making Lagos a 21st Century Economy, Entertainment & Tourism and Security & Good Governance.

On this note, Mr. Speaker and Honourable Members, I have the privilege to stand before you to present the 2020 Budget Proposal, which we have christened, “The Budget of Awakening”. This is a momentous occasion, enshrined in the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The preparation, presentation and consideration of an annual Budget by the Executive and Legislature respectively rank among the most important and impactful functions of democratic governance. So, by this, we are acting within the ambit of the Constitution and the laws of our land. Mr. Speaker and Honourable Members, our national economy, having recovered from recession, is gradually picking up, and has recorded nine consecutive quarters of growth. However, at about 2 percent GDP growth, the recovery is still fragile. Lagos, like other states, is not immune to the issues faced nationally, and even globally. Global economic factors like the drop in crude oil price and environmental challenges like rising sea levels, affect the State and its economy. As one of the fastest growing cities in the world, hosting 10% of the country’s population on less than 0.4% of the entire land mass, Lagos indeed has its own special set of challenges such as unemployment, infrastructural deficit, climate change, and high levels of unchecked rural-urban migration.

On a more optimistic note, the size of our economy and the scale of entrepreneurial resourcefulness have also traditionally commanded continental and global attention. Indeed, as of 2018, according to available data, Lagos ranked as the 7th largest economy in Africa; and larger than the national economies of Ghana and Kenya. Just last month, Lagos was acknowledged by the World Bank for its significant contribution to Nigeria’s impressive performance in the World Bank Doing Business

Index. I am confident that with the creativity, ingenuity and resilience of our people, and the determination of this administration, our aspirations for a Greater Lagos – a prosperous, safe and secure Lagos – are very much on course.


Mr. Speaker, and Honorable Members of the Lagos State House of Assembly, the objectives of our 2020 budget proposal include:

  1. Attract private sector investments to the State economy by creating an enabling environment;
  2. Aggressively develop, upgrade and maintain our Infrastructure;
  3. Invest in human capital development, i.e. education and healthcare;
  4. Facilitate sustainable social investment and enterprise;
  5. Improve capacity to collect due revenues as efficiently as possible;
  6. Improve civic participation in governance, and automate public services and engagement;
  7. Build impactful partnerships with the Federal Government, other States, development partners and civil society; and
  8. Improve the quality of the environment and our public spaces generally.



Mr. Speaker and Honorable Members of this Hallowed Chamber, as you are all aware, the Year 2019 Budget proposal was prepared and presented before you for consideration and subsequent approval before this administration came on board.


One of my first tasks when I assumed office as Governor was to sign the 2019 Appropriation Bill into law on June 3, 2019. In the five months since the Budget became effective, our administration has commissioned several projects in line with our THEMES agenda, including but not limited to the following: We completed and opened the Maternal and Child Care Centers (MCC) in Eti-Osa and Alimosho LGAs, completed and commissioned 492 housing units at the Lateef Jakande Estate in Igando; and we donated security vehicles and equipment to our security operatives.


We also launched the Blue Box waste recycling Program, to bring waste management in Lagos State into the 21st century, and kick-start a positive transformation of citizen behavior. Several other projects are nearing completion, including 31 roads in Ojokoro/Ijaiye/Ifako Local Government Area, a High Court and Magistrates Court complex in Eti-Osa Local Government Area, and a Police Command Complex in Ojo Local Government Area. Working with you, Honourable members of this esteemed House, we achieved the re-ordering of the budget. This includes a plan to increase borrowing by way of internal loans and bond issuance, totaling N250billion, to address critical infrastructure needs, including the following: a. Public School Infrastructure Rehabilitation Program, which will transform 300 public schools across the State. b. Road Infrastructure Projects: Lagos – Badagry Expressway; Agege – Pen Cinema Overhead Bridge; Agric – Isawo Road; Bola Ahmed Tinubu; Ikoyi-Victoria Island CBD reconstruction projects – Igbogbo Road, and our Zero Tolerance for Potholes program. c.Rail/Civil infrastructure works; d. Construction and completion of MCCs in Badagry, Epe and Ojo; e. Desilting of major drain systems across the State; and construction of new ones; f. Provision of Security and Emergency Equipment. Despite these loans, our sustainability ratio of total debt service to total revenue remains good at 29% and we still intend to achieve a capital to recurrent expense ratio of 55:45 by the end of 2019. Let me also state that we are committed to ensuring that all new borrowing is done under the most responsible fiscal terms possible. Mr. Speaker and Honorable Members, permit me to inform you that as at September 2019, overall budget performance stood at 69%. Total revenue was ₦468.576 billion representing 78% of our target performance. As at September 2019, Capital Expenditure stood at ₦217.763 billion, representing 61% performance, while Recurrent Expenditure performance came in at 79%. While these outcomes are generally below our expectation, we have taken steps through our reordering exercise, graciously approved by this House, to redirect the budget for a significantly improved performance by the end of 2019.



Mr. Speaker and Honorable Members of the House, I will now move to the highlights of the 2020 Budget, which is fully consistent with our THEMES agenda, and gives priority to the completion of ongoing projects. The Proposed Budget Size for Year 2020 is 1.168 Trillion Naira; to be funded by a projected Total Revenue of 1.071 Trillion Naira, and a deficit amounting to 97.53 Billion Naira. This budget size is higher than the 2019 budget by 34%. Capital expenditure amounts to 723.75 Billion Naira while the Recurrent Expenditure is 444.81 Billion Naira giving a 62:38 capital to recurrent ratio. This, in our view, is strong for development. We have placed an increased focus on wealth creation where we will take deliberate steps in courting a partnership between our people and various development institutions. In line with this, we have provided N11.8bn as counterpart funds in preparation for various social impact schemes. In addition, we have made provisions for N7.1bn this year, to provide for industrial hubs, parks, graduate internship programs and virtual markets for artisans. This is in support for Micro, Small and Medium enterprises which are the engines for both economic and employment growth. It is equally proposed that a total of 167.81 Billion Naira of the Recurrent Expenditure shall be applied towards personnel costs and other staff-related expenses. This represents 22.02% of the proposed Total Revenue, which is within the acceptable wage policy of 25% of Total Revenue, and includes a provision for the new minimum wage. The budget deficit of 97.53 Billion Naira will be financed by both internal and external loans. Since revenue generation is the spine of any budget, this budget supports investment in our revenue generating agencies. As mentioned earlier, Mr. Speaker, this budget seeks to aggressively invest in and develop our education, health and other physical infrastructure sectors. Although our capital spend on works and infrastructure was just 31 Billion Naira as at September 2019, as against the 2019 budget proposal of 78 Billion Naira, it is our intention to spend 115 Billion Naira in 2020. Education will see a significantly increased capital budgetary allocation of 48 Billion Naira, an increase of 60% over the 2019 provision of 30 Billion Naira. We must improve the standard and relevance of our education outcomes to our industries. We will work together with our Local governments to strengthen early child education and teacher’s training/administration, leveraging technology.


Similarly, in healthcare, we have provided for a capital expenditure of 33 Billion Naira, compared to the 2019 budget proposal of 21 Billion Naira. We will ensure that our primary health care institutions remain active and attractive to the primary health care needs of our people. Lagos belongs to us all; we will continue therefore to drive partnerships with the private sector in promoting health services within our institutions. Given the perennial challenges of flooding in the metropolis, we have tripled the capital budget provision to tackle this from 3 Billion Naira in 2019 to 9 Billion Naira in 2020.


Permit me at this point to highlight some unique things about this budget proposal. First, in putting it together, we held consultations across the three senatorial districts, in addition to taking memoranda and feedback from stakeholders’ meetings organized by Honorable Members of the House within their constituencies, which were also attended by Cabinet members. It is indeed true that when Lagos speaks, this administration listens. Secondly, this 2020 Budget will be supported by a Performance Management System that will ensure that, by December 2020, we shall achieve an optimal budget implementation when compared with previous years. This is in line with our commitment to transparency and accountability in the management of public finances.



Mr. Speaker and Honorable Members of the House, as highlighted earlier, our dear Lagos faces an existential threat, arising from the interplay of demographic and climate change. Lagos is and will continue to be a magnet for multitudes within and outside Nigeria, in search of jobs and economic prosperity. These levels of migration put phenomenal strain on the physical and fiscal resources of the state.

The choice before us is simple – we can either allow ourselves to be overwhelmed by the challenges, or boldly confront them. I am energized because, all through the course of history, communities have faced existential threats at some point or the other. And what has made the difference time and again is an acknowledgement of the threats, and the collective will-power to take decisive action, however seemingly difficult it may be in the short term. It is therefore time to imagine a new Lagos – A “Greater Lagos”. It is time to create and realize new and audacious dreams, targets and goals.


We have seen societies transform, within the course of two generations, from being trapped in a cycle of wars, mindless plunder, high rates of poverty, illiteracy, and crime, into livable, high performing and world-dominating economies. Lagos will do it too. But like all great things, this will come at a cost. We have to make sacrifices for it. We have to reinvent and rethink Lagos. With our very small land mass and very dense population, we have to rethink land use. We have to rethink inter-communal relationships. We have to rethink infrastructural development. We have to rethink our transport systems.


We have to rethink our well-being. We have to move from glib statements about Lagos as a center of excellence. Lagos has to be truly excellent in something. Something positive, remarkable and admirable. In other words, a Greater Lagos. It is on this plank that the “2020 Budget of Awakening to a Greater Lagos” is premised and I hereby present it for your kind consideration and approval.

Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu Addresses State Workers.

The Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has advised workers in the state to be change agents, assuring them that their concerns would be addressed, but that the workforce must reciprocate his good intention through hard work and innovations to bring about the desired changes and development.

Speaking at a meeting with Civil Servants and Permanent Secretaries during his familiarization tour of offices in the Secretariat, Alausa, Sanwo-Olu acknowledged that there were challenges, but urged the workers not to be deterred and imbibe the right attitude to work.

“I know that when we take care of you, you will take care of Lagosians and so those are the promises I want to draw from all of you.

“I know all these because I have been here before but let us begin to think and innovate on how we are going to bake a bigger cake; let us begin to think out of the box and when we do that it becomes available for all.

“I just want to say to Lagosians that new things will begin to happen. Yes, there are issues and that is why there is a word ‘issue’. There will be issues, there will be challenges but out of it, looking at all your faces, we cannot afford to fail the citizens at this period.

He gave the assurance that issues surrounding the minimum wage would be addressed, promising to ensure that the take-home pay of workers will truly take them home.

“On the issue around the minimum wage, we are going to sort that out very soon and I will make sure that whilst we do the work that we are meant to do, your take home will begin to take you home, but Lagosians have to feel it from day one from the way we speak to them and from the way we take their records.”

Gov. Ambode Presents N852.316bn Y2019 Budget To House

Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode Presents N852.316bn Y2019 Budget To House Of Assembly

Targets N775.2bn IGR, To Complete Major Ongoing Projects


Lagos State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode on Tuesday presented the year 2019 budget proposal of N852.316billion to the House of Assembly, with a pledge that it had been carefully prepared to be all-encompassing and dedicated to complete major ongoing projects in the State.

The Governor said N462.757billion representing 54 percent of the total budget size had been earmarked for capital expenditure, while N389.560billion representing 46 percent had been dedicated to recurrent expenditure, saying that key projects such as the Oshodi-Murtala Mohammed International Airport Road and Oshodi Interchange Terminal, among others would be completed.

He said from inception of his administration, nine key areas were given priority after careful assessment of the needs of the citizens, adding that such had informed the massive investment in the said sectors which he listed to include security, transport / traffic management, economy -including tourism and agriculture, housing, education, health, infrastructure – social and physical, water, wealth creation – skill acquisition/microfinance, e-Governance and enhanced capacity building, sustainable environment and smart city projects.

Giving details of what informed the budget size, Governor Ambode said the performance of Y2018 budget of N1.046trn as at November 2018 stood at 60 percent owing to reduction in revenue projections, while the total revenue stood at N530.192billion.

According to him, “In the outgoing year, however, we experienced a reduction in our revenue projections, which affected our projected performance and our desired implementation of the Y2018 Budget. The overall Budget performance as at November 2018 stood at 60 per cent/N574,206billion with actual cumulative total revenue of N530,192billion/64 per cent, Capital Expenditure closed at N311,930billion/49 per cent and Recurrent Expenditure performed at N262,276billion/82 per cent.

“In preparing the Year 2019 Budget, therefore, we were very mindful of the out-going year performance, the yearnings of our people and the fact that we are going into an election year. Consequently, we are today presenting a Budget that will be all-encompassing, reflect the level of resources that will be available and with special consideration to the completion of major on-going projects in the State.”

While outlining the key components of the Y2019 budget and the sectoral allocations, the Governor said with priority given to completion of major infrastructure projects and smooth transition to the next administration, the government was proposing a total budget size of ‘N852,316,936,483,’ including a deficit financing of N77.086billion which is expected to be sourced from internal loans and other sources.

He added: “The projected total revenue for Year 2019 is ₦775.231billion, of which ₦606.291billion is expected to be generated internally, ₦168.940billion is expected from Federal Transfers while a total of  ₦77.086billion will be sourced through deficit financing within our medium term expenditure framework.

“In 2019, as was with our previous budgets, Economic Affairs still dominates the sectoral allocation of the proposed budget. This is due to our continued focus on the completion of major on-going projects such as: Oshodi-Murtala Mohammed International Airport Road; Agege Pen Cinema Flyover; Phase II of Aradagun-Iworo -Epeme Road, Oshodi Interchange Terminal; completion of JK Randle Complex, Onikan Stadium; Imota Rice Mill; Renovation/Furnishing of Lagos Revenue House, amongst others in order to meet their specified deliverable outcomes without any bias or prejudice to others.”

Expressing optimism that the revenues of the State would improve in 2019, Governor Ambode said the government had begun consolidating on the already established public financial management and technology-driven revenue reforms through data integration and use of multi-payment channels, just as he said that every strata of the society would benefit from the budget.

“The Year 2019 Budget has been carefully planned to accommodate all and sundry; women, youth and physically challenged, young and old. We will continue to spread development to all part of our state even as we embark on effective transition knowing fully well that the implementation, failure or success of the Budget depend on all of us,” he said.

Besides, Governor Ambode commended the Speaker and members of the Assembly for the support accorded his administration in the last three and half years, while also acknowledging the role of Royal Fathers, Religious leaders, members of the Business Community, Professional Bodies, Development Partners, Non-Governmental Organisations, public servants and all residents as well as members of the fourth estate of the realm for their various support and contribution during the lifespan of his administration.

 In his remarks, Speaker of the House, Rt. Hon Mudashiru Obasa expressed optimism that the budget would be of great benefit to the people of the State, just as he assured that the House would work with the executive to pass the budget.

Notification of all Stakeholders: Abolition of Cash Payments…

Notification of all Stakeholders: Abolition of Cash Payments in Revenue Collection in Lagos State

In line with the drive to streamlining the internal revenue generation of the Lagos State Government, while improving payment processes for Government Services and eliminating incidences of loss of Government revenue, His Excellency, the Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode has directed that all cash collections, by MDAs, into the State coffers be abolished immediately.

This has necessitated that all MDAs in the State Civil Service be integrated into the Lagos State Central Billing System (CBS). The CBS is a technology-based financial solution that allows for control and generation of electronic-invoice tied to some particular transaction.

The Lagos State Public Procurement Agency (PPA), being one of the key revenue generating MDAs has also been integrated into the CBS platform.

The implication of this integration is that no cash payment will be allowed for any Government transactions of any kind and as a consequence of this, Consultants, Suppliers, Service Providers or Business Partners of the State, that are willing to make any form of payments to the State/PPA, are expected to obtain the necessary electronic-invoice from the Finance & Accounts Department of PPA before making such payments to LASG designated Banks.

Asides making payments to the LASG designated Banks, other Channels of payments (which are also an embodiment of the CBS) are the web-paypay-pointUSSD and other conventional on-line payments.

According to the circular issued by the Lagos State Head of Service, (Mrs Folasade Adesoye) on this matter, this new development became effective from the 1st March, 2018.

Therefore all Stakeholders are enjoined to take note of this new development and ensure compliance. For further clarifications, please contact:
