“I personally asked the presidential candidate to what extent he will overcome the security issues in my state and he said he will established a gold refinery in the state.
“Establishing gold refinery will address banditry, kidnapping and other crimes bedeviling the state and the region as well. In addition to jobs’ opportunities and wealth creation among the population.
