Nigeria’s mining sector can now attract greater foreign investment as the nation is building a world-class mining sector that will contribute to the country’s non-oil economy. As a result, His Excellency, the President, initiated the PAGMI programme to facilitate fair dealing for artisanal miners and accelerate the development of the Nigerian economy’s Solid Minerals Sector.
The NSIA board invested $5 million in Bridge International Academies (Nigeria), an education company focused on providing high-quality education to children from low-income families.
The education company’s programmes have expanded to two states; Lagos and Edo State. In Lagos, the programme is known as EkoExcel, and in Edo State, it is known as EdoBest.
