THE Minister of State for Mines and Steel Development, Sen Gbemisola Saraki, has lauded the World Bank’s project, MinDivers, for training young Nigerians across the six geopolitical zones on value addition on gemstone and jewelry production, which is a game-changer for the Nigerian mining industry.
Gbemisola expressed joy for the graduants made up of young men and women as they have been empowered free of charge for the rigorous but professional training on gemstone and jewelry finishing.
In her speech, she said this high and intensive capacity building would cascade to other young people at the States and Local Government Areas, and as a result millions of youths will be employed and become employers of labour, which will reduce criminality as there is huge profitability and wealth creation in gemstones and jewelries.
