According to a statement by presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, under the leadership of Engr.

“This also accounts for about 50% of the contribution of the Ministry of Mines and Steel Development to the economy.

“His recently-unveiled reforms in the automation of the Mining Cadastre system have revolutionalised online and real time mineral title administration and management.

“It is also to the credit of Engr Nkom during his first term that the Nigeria Mining Cadastre Office was named the best Agency of the Federal Government in the category of Digital Innovation Awards for the year 2022 under the auspices of the Nigeria Internet Registration Association (NIRA), for adding value to the activities of the Cadastre Office,” the statement read in part.
