    The buyers of Nigerian assets are not really in support for development of our great country. Hence, these much solid mineral resources are located in Nigeria, they can help financially invest their wealth to salvage the country from the current situation of economic recession.

  9. I Think Nigeria Wil Be Better If Concentrate On Mineral Resources

  10. Mohammed Ahmed Jalam says:

    where do I find occurrence of copper in Nigeria.

  11. Sule Benjamin O. says:

    Thank God for His mercies over Nigeria. Nigeria can be better if we human manager of God`s resources become serious. virtually there are few local govt. in Nigeria that have no mineral resources but still have viable land. we can do it this way, federal govt. should allow the states and local govt to partner with interested investors with some conditions, such as considering major developmental infrastructures. tax on profit from proceeds should be distributed thus; local govt education trust fund 5%, local govt health fund 5%, Truck c roads 2%, security 3%. then state govt take 5%, federal govt 10% totaling 30% tax. the company will now be oblique to use 10% to develop the immediate area of the mineral. the remaining 60% is very much enough to take care of the company expansion and retention. this includes all mineral resources across Nigeria, this might not be a perfect idea but let try something different from what we have now. God bless our country
