Federal government set to close-mark the mining sector

The federal government says it would no longer tolerate false declaration of mineral production and other sharp practices by some miners, in the mining agency.

The head of the committee on the optimisation of revenue from mineral resources sector, Uchechukwu Ogah disclosed this in Abuja while addressing journalists.

Ogah said in spite of the huge potential in the solid minerals sector, it was not contributing enough to the country`s gross domestic product.

He further added that the dismal performance was unacceptable and promised that the committee would work as a strong team to produce workable strategies for the sector.
