Nigerian ministry to end use of imported stuff in uniforms
Nigeria’s minister of interior retired Lt Gen Abdulrahman Dambazau recently announced plans to end the import of textile materials for producing uniforms by all services under his ministry. Dambazau announced this when the New Nigeria Development Company (NNDC) management sought his support for the revitalisation of the company’s textile industry.

The minister reminded the various heads of agencies the need to strictly follow the order to support local raw material in public procurement, according to Nigerian media reports.

Dambazau hoped that the step would help revive the nation’s textile industries and ensure the complete domestic production of uniforms and other accoutrements by 2019. (DS)
