The Ministry of Mines and Steel Development. yesterday reviewed the sector’s road map to chart a way forward and move towards progress.
The minister, Muhammed Sada, said at a media roundtable that the essence of the road map launched two years ago was “to give direction and to make sure that whatever we are doing is channeled in the right direction and make sure that in whatever we are doing we are moving toward progress.”
He said there is no state in the country without mineral resources, adding that the ministry is working on how to get the data for each local government and how individuals can get information on them on the internet, adding “One Local Government One Mineral resource is achievable.”
The permanent secretary in the ministry, John Jegede, said the road map is aimed at addressing the sector in a holistic manner using the value chain approach.
