Themed, ‘Capability Management of the Armed Forces of Nigeria through an Integrated Procurement System’, the Chief of Defence Staff said the seminar would ensure that the operational requirements of the military would always be assessed with what the end users need. “The theme derives its focus from global best practices where urgent operational requirements are matched with needs assessed from end users”, he said.
