Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, is scheduled to meet with miners and other mining stakeholders in Lafia, the capital of Nasarawa State.
According to Track News, the APC Presidential Campaign Council’s Director of Media and Publicity, Bayo Onanuga, made the announcement in a statement on Wednesday.

He stated that Tinubu will attend a town hall meeting with miners and other critical stakeholders in the sector as part of his ongoing strategic engagement with key players in the economy.

According to Onanuga, the meeting is necessary because Nasarawa is a major mining hub for many solid minerals in the country.
