Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari to attend Nigeria Mining Week in the capital Abuja on 1 November. The president’s presence shows government’s support for the country’s growing mining sector.
Event director Patricia Kazaka said: “Nigeria is the next investment destination in the mining industry and the government has been unwavering in its undertaking and goal to take its mining sector to the next level.
“We are delighted that President Buhari will honour the Nigeria Mining Weekexpo and conference with his presence on the opening day. He also delivered a message during one of our online events recently, but as we are making a much-lauded live return to the Nigerian capital, the entire industry, from mining houses to investors to artisanal miners, is excited to see at the Abuja International Conference Center in person.”
Established seven years ago, the partners of Nigeria Mining Week’s partners include the Ministry of Mines and Steel Development and the Miners Association of Nigeria (MAN) in collaboration with PwC Nigeria and VUKA Group (formerly Clarion Events Africa).
