The Ministry of Solid Minerals Development has disclosed the Federal Government of Nigeria plans to work Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC), a leading multinational consulting firm, to implement policies under the Ministry’s seven-point roadmap to transform the sector of the economy.

Dr. Oladele Alake, Honourable Minister for Solid Minerals Development, who disclosed this development while receiving Habeeb Jaiyeola,  Partner on Mining at Price WaterHouse Coopers, in his office in Abuja, FCT.

Alake commended the firm for its role in the just-concluded Nigerian Mining Week and the first phase of the bitumen concession programme.

The Minister also assured the stakeholders that the expertise and ideas of PwC would be factored into reforms of the mining sector and implementation of the seven-point agenda in Nigeria.

Alake equally restated President Bola Ahmed Tinubu administration’s  focus on the sector as a game-changer in the bid to reposition the West African country for lasting prosperity for the citizenry.

Speaking during his visit to the Minister’s office in Abuja, Jaiyeola also affirmed PwC’s readiness to partner with the Ministry of Solid Minerals Development to attain set objectives of the agenda.

ConsumerConnect reports the Ministry’s seven-point agenda seeks to make the solid minerals a key sector and major revenue earner to attract Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) to the country.

“We summarised our thoughts on the seven-point agenda, looking at it and suggesting how to bring it to life whilst advising on pitfalls and how to avoid them,” he stated.

Jaiyeola further explained “the major thing is that at the end of the tenure of the administration, there will be key deliverables that can be monitored, and the roadmap on how each of them is going to be achieved and projected.

“We will be open to further deliberations on how we can proceed by comparing notes.”
