Nigeria’s Mining Sector shows growth prospects

The Minister of Oil and Gas of the Government of National Unity, Mohammed Aoun, has discussed with the Nigerian Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Olamilekan Adegbite, mining cooperation as Libya is rich in minerals such as iron, cement and glass.
