Maku at Mines Ministerial Platform
Minister of Information, Labran Maku said the initiatives have began yielding results as Nigeria has been elected as the best implementing nation of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative. This, he added is due to the strengthening of the right laws and regulations which have purged corruption in that sector.
The Minister who traced the revenue generation ability of the sector to the 1960’s stressed the need for Nigeria to diversify its economy for comparative advantage. Parastatals such as TETFUND and MDG are also expected to feature at the 2013 Ministerial Platform at a date to be announced later.
