Permanent Secretary, Mines and Steel Development Ministry, Mohammed Abbas, has direct all the Directors of the ministry to ensure full implementation of the Nigeria mining roadmap.
Abbas gave the directive at a two-day sensitisation and retreat for the Directorate level of the ministry in Abuja.
He said the directors should collaborate with the Mining Implementation Strategy Team saddled with the responsibility of ensuring full implementation of the mining roadmap to move the sector forward.
The 27 team members consist of civil servants, academia and miners. The team was inaugurated on 2016 with the mandate to ensure that the recommendations in the roadmap were well implemented.
He said the responsibility of the Team was to help in guiding the ministry to implement and achieve the objectives of the roadmap. He charged the tip management to read and acquaint themselves with the relevant provisions of the roadmap as it defined their relationship with the Team.
