Nigerians looking up to You, BPE boss charges staff

The newly appointed Director-General of the Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE), Mr. Ayodeji Ariyo Gbeleyi, has charged the staff of the Bureau to work diligently as Nigerians look up to them to contributing their quota to pave the way for a more stable and prosperous economy. 

The new DG made this statement at his first Town – hall meeting organised to interact with the staff of the Bureau on Wednesday 26th June, 2024 at the Wells Carlton Hotel, Asokoro, Abuja. 

Mr. Gbeleyi, noted that the Bureau has been entrusted with the reform of the nation’s public enterprises, which must be optimised for operational efficiency and excellence. He emphasised that the ultimate goal is to improve the standard of living for every Nigerian through the diligent implementation of the Bureau’s reform activities. 

He added that as part of the “Renewed Hope” agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration, his appointment as the Director General of the Bureau by Mr. President has entrusted him with the critical mandate of strengthening the BPE as the national resource center for capacity building and the sustenance of reforms. This includes promoting a competitive private sector-driven economy, ensuring social accountability, efficiently deploying public resources, and advancing effective corporate governance through discipline, which aligns with the Bureau’s mission. 

He urged the staff of the Bureau to be innovative and work as a team to meet the expectations of Nigerians. “We must realise that there are limits to what we can achieve as individuals, but endless possibilities lie ahead of us as a team,” he said.
