  1. Please is this report real, because we can’t actually have all these and as well being suffering or is it self imposed suffering?

    • Hello Mic. Yes the report is true. We have that much mineral resources in the country, there’s a lot that goes into getting them to be useful. You should check up the terms “Exploration” and “Exploitation”. It’s take a lot of logistics, manpower, financial and some other resources to explore and exploit for mineral resources. Government alone cannot invest in the mining/extractive industry and do well, we need private investors. ……. but because investment in this field is unlike your regular kind of investments, it takes a lot of time, years to claim dividends, just a few are willing to invest their energy, money and time into it. You should also check up NPV.
