Senate passes law enforcing the purchase of made-in-Nigeria goods by government officials



 The senate at its plenary today passed into law the Public Procurement Act 20‎07 (amendment) bill 2016, which among other things compels government in all the three tiers, to purchase made-in-Nigeria goods. Speaking after the passage of the bill, senate President, Bukola Saraki, said


"In stimulating our economy, we all have a role to play to ensure that the executive complies especially in the area of giving first priority to locally-produced goods. This has helped many countries to develop when they had issues of downturn in their economy. I want to commend my colleagues for passing this bill‎.”
