The Federal Government says it has put plans in motion to enforce the buying of Nigerian products by government agencies.
The Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has said that the Act establishing the Bureau of Public Procurements would be reviewed to enforce the buying of Nigerian products which would, in turn, boost the economy.
Mohammed was speaking at a townhall meeting in Umuahia on Monday and said the measures put in place by the Federal Government include the approval given to the Bureau of Public Procurement to increase the patronage of Made-in-Nigeria good and services through a review of its Act.”
He added that the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council, which is presided over by the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, had approved a 60-day national action plan for ease of doing business in Nigeria.
How exactly can the Minister of Information compel NIgerians to buy “Made in Nigeria” goods?
