Tinubu, made the promise while engaging miners, heads of security, and captains of industry during a town hall meeting with key players in Lafia the Nasarawa state capital.
Tagged as the home of solid minerals, Nasarawa state is already getting attention with the hope of reaping more benefits from its natural endorsement.
He noted that his administration would enact legislative reforms and forge strategic partnerships with private-sector investors to attract investments in the mining sector.
Nasarawa State Governor, the host Abdullahi Sule said Tinubu’s engagement with the mining community provides more opportunities not just for them but Nigerians at large.
The National Chairman of APC, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, Governor Simon Lalong, and senator Tanko Almakura said untapped natural resources due to insecurity caused by illegal miners will be addressed.
They added that the sector when properly positioned will contribute more to building the nation’s GDP.
