President Buhari Launches Presidential Artisanal Gold Mining Development Initiative

President Buhari has virtually launched the Presidential Artisanal Gold Mining Development Initiative (#PAGMI), this afternoon, at the State House, Abuja.

Hundreds of Nigerians virtually joined President Buhari as he performed the official launch of the Presidential Artisanal Gold Mining Development Initiative (#PAGMI), earlier today.

Today at the official launch of #PAGMI, the Central Bank of Nigeria paid a total sum of N268.6 million to purchase a 12.5kg gold bar, the Nigeria’s first artisanally-mined gold processed and refined according to LBMA standards.

The gold now belongs to our external reserves.
