//-Godwin Ekosin, Kaduna//
“We have just found that there is more gold in Birnin Gwari local government area of Kaduna than in South Africa.
“We are discussing with a large international mining company to come and explore our gold reserves in Kaduna state.
“We are focusing on mining and agriculture in creating jobs in this state.
“The mining company we are discussing with is going to take our local miners and train them and will group them into cooperatives so that they would become like sub contractors to them and be able to work with them. We are working with the federal government very closely to ensure that this happens.”
“In its breadth and scope, the plan leaves no one behind. children, young adults and the elderly have the state as an ally for the pressing needs of their status.
“This is not utopia, but a deliberate, incremental improvements to enhance the the life chances of our people.”
Those were the words of Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai at the opening of a 2-day economic summit in Kaduna on Wednesday.
