He told the youths at a forum he organised for them in Makurdi Tuesday that the bank has also established a N5 billion fund for small scale miners as part of the Fed Min of Mines and Solid Minerals Development programme to boost mining activities in Nigeria just as it has provided 20 million dollars fund to support Young Technology Enterpreneurs in Nigeria since 2016.
