FG begins mineral resource development in all regions – Minister

THE Federal Government has commenced the development of mineral resources in all six geopolitical regions.

The Minister of State, Mines and Steel Development, Dr Uchechukwu Ogah, disclosed this on Monday at the 32nd Enugu International Trade Fair.

The minister revealed that the federal government has started the development of lead/zinc processing cluster in Ebonyi; and other mineral resources development in the region.

According to him, the federal government would exploit comparative advantage and provide support to other production value chains in the nation’s economy, revealing that other salt and limestone facilities would be a needed boost for fertilizer operations.

Ogah mentioned other mineral resource clusters including a Barite development area in Cross River State for export and for oil and gas production.

“It has also inspired innovative policy solutions to unexpected new challenges in the economic environment.

“I am confident that the Southeast will continue to be at the forefront of investment and industrial innovations to help steer Nigeria towards greater economic development,” he said.

“The pervasive economic disruptions induced by the COVID-19 pandemic have challenged nations to innovate. One pivotal way that proactive countries are adapting to survive the challenging global economic disruptions is to accelerate the evolution of the industrial sector through innovations in the digital economy,” he added.

Naija Times earlier reported that the Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Olalekan Adegbite, had said the Federal government was ready to support mining business in order to diversify the economy and improve manpower.
