The Minister of State for Mines and Steel Development Hon. Abubakar Bawa Bwari says that the Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) can set up investments in the solid minerals sector through the AMAC Property and Investment Company.
The Minister stated this when the Chairman of AMAC, Hon. Abdullahi Adamu Candido and his team paid him a courtesy call in his office on Wednesday.
Bwari said the Council can identify its area of interest in the mining sector and partner with local or foreign companies of like minds to actualise it.
He said the Ministry is ready to partner with any serious investor in the industry.
The Minister commended the Chairman and his team on their role in leading people at the seat of power in Abuja which comprise the elite and the rural communities. He said their position in the FCT is unique and sensitive because it is always difficult for people to differentiate between what belongs to FCTA and AMAC.
