It is interesting to see how much procurement officers are now needed, both in the public and private sector in Nigeria. The career path for young professionals in this field looks bright. As the drive for improving competitive edge in the private sector and the overall need for improved value for money,transparency and accountability in the public sector drive this sector. It is sad that no Nigerian University appears to be seeing and harnessing the opportunities this trend presents. With a new procurement cadre in the federal public service and 24 of 36 states with procurement laws that will lead to new procurement cadres in the various state services. The opportunity is so obvious, why do you think the academic institutions are not seing this or acting quickly to harness it?
