From Limestone to Kaolin, from Iron Ore to Gold, Nigeria is blessed with a wide range of Solid Minerals. If well mined, the sector could set the economy on a positive trajectory. However, we must not make the same mistake as we did with Oil. The blueprint must ensure that value is added all across and in-country jobs are created. Limestone could have been mined and exported for peanuts but Dangote cited his cement factory in Obajana and the rest is history now. Could we have had a better outcome with Ajaokuta if it had been private sector led? Join us on another episode of The Economy and You! as Adegboyega Adebajo – An economist, a capital market operator, a seasoned banker and the CEO of West Atlantic Resource and Equity House Ltd., walks us through the opportunities and challenges in the solid mineral sector as well as the path the ministry of solid minerals must take if the sector is to move beyond potentials.
