Adegboyega Oyetola, the Osun State Governor has reportedly stated that with the large mineral deposits across SouthWest, the region should not lack resources for development.
Oyetola reportedly disclosed this in Osogbo, on Thursday at the opening of South-West Local Governments Agriculture and Mineral Resources Trade Fair organised by the Osun Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture.
According to him, “A study says every state in the nation has at least four mineral resources in commercial quantity. South West states obviously have more.”
He noted that, “This fair, which is expected to have positive multiplier effect on the economy of the states in the South-West, is aimed at maximally harnessing the potential of each local government in the South-West and showcase such globally.”
