The Federal Government has again reiterated Its commitment to diversify the nation’s economy, reduce poverty and create massive job opportunities for the teeming populace through the solid mineral.

In a statement signed by the Senior Information Officer (SIO), Ijomah Opia, on behalf of the Head of Press and Public Relations, the minister reiterated that the nation’s solid minerals would trigger industrialisation and national development, which would lead to achieving the Federal Government’s goals of creating more wealth.

He noted that it was remarkable and auspicious to have such an elite institution like NIPSS visit the ministry to understudy the sector for the purposeful interactive dialogue on policy formulation and implementation strategies with respect to the development of the Nigerian mineral resources for national development.

Also speaking, the Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Dr Oluwatoyin Akinlade, said the ministry would work with all stakeholders and development partners such as NIPSS to develop the sector.

Dr Akinlade expressed delight in the fact-finding mission of the delegation with a view to helping resolve and give headway to the critical areas in the mineral and metal industry.
