Governors have opposed the government’s e-procurement system earmarked to seal corruption loopholes claiming that it was not friendly to them. In a statement to the press, they asked the Central Government to suspend the plan until they were consulted as well as allow County personnel to familiarize themselves with it.

“On procurement, the activation of the same must be put on hold until all personnel at the County level have been fully trained on the setting and use of the system,” read the statement in part.

The Governors further accused the Government of introducing a supplier portal which seeks to centralize the tendering process, a move they claimed will affect devolution.

“The council strongly opposes the inception of this programme because it will erode and offend the objects of devolution on ensuring equitable sharing of national and local resources throughout the country,” said the Governors.
