The Kaduna Chamber of Commerce, Industry Mines and Agriculture has made known its belief that an exploration of the solid mineral potential of Nigeria can beat the revenue generated from crude oil.

An announcement was made in Lagos in respect to its 37 Trade Fair to be held in Kaduna.

Though the country has a high collection of mineral resources, it has not tapped into what could become a game changer for Nigeria’s economy.

Instead it has mainly depended on the export of crude oil.
