Minister of Interior, Mr Abdulrahman Bello Dambazau has disclosed that the implementation of Executive Order 003 would enhance the economy and save foreign exchange for the country.
Executive Order 003 requires all Ministries, Departments and Agencies of government to grant preference to local manufacturers of goods and service providers in their procurement of goods and services.
Mr Dambazau, while receiving the Minister of State for Industry, Trade and Investment, Hajia Aisha Abubakar, this week, pledged his Ministry’s commitment to implementation of the order.
He noted that it was important for government to partner with the private sector to boost local production.
He disclosed that the Ministry has the largest market for uniforms produced in Nigeria, considering the staff strength of its services: Nigeria Police Force (NPF), Federal Fire Service (FFS), Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Nigeria Prisons Service (NPS) and Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).
In her remarks, Hajia Abubakar, who was at the Ministry to display some Made-in-Nigeria products for use by the services, urged the Ministry of Interior to use its staff strength to procure uniforms, foot wears, berets and other items produced in the country for use.
She said the Ministry was important to the Made-in-Nigeria campaign, assuring them of quality products.
