Federal Government, United Arab Emirate To Track Illicit Gold Trade Within Both Countries.

the federal government and the United Arab Emirates, (UAE) are to work together to track illicit gold trade within both countries.

Minister Of Mines and Steel Development, Olamilekan Adegbite, speaking with newsmen in Abuja, explains that the Nigerian government is negotiating a bilateral agreement with the Asian country to check every gold entering Dubai from Nigeria.

He noted that most of the gold illegally moves from the country passes through UAE freely because Dubai police are not aware that the gold are illegally taken from Nigeria.

Adegbite however, reveals that the Ajaokuta steel company limited will function to capacity before the end of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
