President Buhari Urges Agencies To Prioritise Indigenous Professionals

President Muhammadu Buhari has directed Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDA) to give priority to indigenous professionals for planning, design and execution of national projects.

At the Inauguration of the Presidential Monitoring and Evaluation Council of the Executive Order 5 at the State House on Thursday, President Buhari admonished that foreign professionals should only be considered where it had been certified that the expertise was not available.

Accordingly, he explained that the Executive Order No 5 was aimed at placing Nigerian Professionals and Manufacturers at the centre of the Nigerian Economy.

The President, who is also Chairman of the Presidential Monitoring Evaluation Council, said the team would oversee the general implementation of the Executive Order 5, and the secretariat would be domiciled at the Federal Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation, supported by the Strategy Implementation Task Office for Presidential Executive Order 5 (SITOPEO-5).
