Natural resources in nigeria

Nigeria is one of the countries in the world that is really blessed with a wide variety of different natural resources. Nigeria is known mainly for petroleum, but asides petroleum, other natural resources such as bitumen, coal, iron ore, coal, limestone, talc, lead, zinc, kaolin, and much more are present in this blessed country. Although some are yet to be exploited. Statistically, the level of exploitation of these minerals is very low compared to the extent of deposit found in the country.

As you can see, Nigeria is blessed with plenty of natural resources, which are the primary source of income in the country. Nigeria depends mainly on crude oil and sadly it has cost us a lot, and we hope the government gets to look into these other resources and exploit them to generate more income.
