Bello noted that the setting up of Gold Processing Cluster in Kogi will again drive more investors into the state which he said will surpass investment inflow into the state in the last
quarter of the year 2020 when Kogi recorded highest investment inflow in the country.

The governor assured the Federal Ministry of Mines and Steel Development of his administration’s readiness to
partner with the ministry in harnessing solid minerals in the state.

He said his deputy, Edward Onoja who oversees the State’s Ministry of Solid Mineral will provide the needed input owing to his background as a Geo-miner.
