Buhari at a Steering Committee and Management Team of PAGMI, asked the team to scale up operations in the mining sector by ensuring that investments go beyond artisanal and small-scale levels.

“I support the Steering Committee’s target of aggregating 3-5 tons of gold over the next 12 months, as this will deliver tremendous fiscal and economic benefits to the nation. The Solid Minerals Development Fund should work with all relevant Government agencies to identify the support and funding needed to deliver on this aggregation target.
