Excitement as Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari to attend Nigeria Mining Week in Abuja on 1 Nov
By: Nigeria Mining Week
This is according to the event director Patricia Kazaka: "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 Week expo and conference with his presence on the opening day on Tuesday, 1 November. 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 proud partners of Nigeria Mining Week include the Ministry of Mines and Steel Development and the Miners Association of Nigeria (MAN) in collaboration with PwC Nigeria and VUKA Group. More than 1200 mining experts are expected at this elite gathering.
Nigeria's Ministry of Mines and Steel Development, Arc. Olamilikan Adegbite, will also personally welcome attendees when he delivers the ministerial address during the opening session on 1 November, followed by a VIP tour of the exhibition floor.
