Ministry of Solid Mineral Development

In 2006 the Ministry of Solid Mineral Development as it was then known had 4000 staff of which 81% were Administrative and 19% Technical. The then Minister gave a concise brief: “Reduce staff strength by more than half and reverse the ratios.”

NAKACHI Consulting was retained to work with various Consultants to achieve this objective. Working with experts in everything from Human Resource to Branding, from Solid Mineral Classification to revamping the Mining Leases MSMD was completely turned around. MSMD ended up with 1,004 staff of which 80% were technical. In the process, NAKACHI Consulting facilitated the largest and most complicated Acculturation Exercise to date in Nigeria’s Public Service history.


The achievements of MSMD are a matter of public record.
