Nigeria has 34 solid minerals in 500 communities unexploited


No fewer than 34 different types of minerals are waiting for exploitation in 500 locations across the country, Muhammed Sada, the minister of minerals and steel development, has said.

He made this known when he paid a courtesy visit on Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State in Ibadan on Monday.

The deputy governor of the state, Alake Adeyemo, received the minister on behalf of the governor.

It would be recalled that the minister was in the state to represent President Goodluck Jonathan at the opening ceremony of the International Conference on Mining and Geo-physics holding in Ibadan.
