After a long period of neglecting the country’s Pottery industry, the federal government has inaugurated a 6-man Ministerial Committee that would rehabilitate Ladi Kwali Pottery Centre, Suleja.
The Committee has Engr. Sani Alhassan as Chairman, Umar Shaibu, Umar Saleh, Yunusa Muhammed, Mr Linus Adie and representative of the Niger State government as members.
Mining Minister, Abubakar Bwari, who was represented by the Project Coordinator of the Mineral Sector Support for Economic Diversification (MinDiver), under the ministry, Linus Adie, said he is excited to be associated with the revival story of the famous Ladi Kwali Pottery Training Centre.
According to him, the new goal of the federal government was to restore the glory of the centre.
Reacting, Chairman of the Committee, Engr. Sani Alhassan, said this is a great day for the Suleja emirate, people and Niger State because efforts were made before with little result.
“I am happy and we will do all we can to get it done. It may seem daunting but we will do our best. What the MinDiver and Ministry of Mines and Steel Development have done is historic.”
