The Federal Government of Nigeria has inaugurated a 10-man committee for full-scale and industrial production of Salt and Kaolin in the country.
The Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Solid Minerals Development Dr Mary Ogbe, said that the initiative to explore and exploit Salt and Kaolin aligns with the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Tinubu-led administration.
“To change the narrative and kick start the development of our nation, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR, with his Renewed Hope Agenda has challenged us to believe in our country and develop it as we do not have another country,” she said.
“It is this consideration that is behind the strong desire of the Honourable Minister of Solid Minerals Development, Dr Oladele Alake to develop the exploration exploitation and processing of salt and Kaolin in Nigeria for Nigeria’s use and subsequent export.
This will provide jobs for Nigerians, conserve foreign exchange and boost our economy.”
