Group Requests Reviving  Of Ajaokuta Steel Mill

Sen. Gbemisola Saraki, the new Minister of State for Mines and Steel Development, has received a request to revive the Ajaokuta Steel Mill from the Iron Rod and Steel Dealers Employers Union of Nigeria.

In a statement released in Lagos, the union’s national president, Chief Gbenga Awoyale, praised Saraki’s transfer to the Federal Ministry of Mines and Steel.

Royale called the action a positive development.

However, the unionist asked Saraki to concentrate on finding ways to assemble financial and technical help, which would make it easier to revive the steel rolling factories in Ajaokuta, Jos, Oshogbo, Delta, and Katsina.

Despite some of them being given to management as concessions, he said that some of these mills had been inactive for more than 20 years.

He contends that the government must make sure that the concessioners operate these mills, or else it will have to cancel the concession and grant it to new applicants.

Currently, the nation is overrun with inferior iron rods due to the malfunction of our nearby mills.

The union has faith in Sen. Saraki’s abilities to support the revival and growth of Nigeria’s mines and steel sector, according to the former minister of state for transportation.

Sen. Saraki, the president continued, will guarantee access to high-quality steel goods and promote economic growth.

“The Iron Rod and Steel Dealers Employers Union of Nigeria accepted the news of Sen. Gbemisola Ruqayyah Saraki’s redeployment as the Minister of State for Mines and Steel with great joy.

“Given her track record of outstanding performance as a former member of the Federal House of Representatives, the Nigerian Senate, and most recently, Minister of State for Transportation, we are confident she will use her magic wand to address the problems that the Nigerian steel industry seems incapable of solving.

“We want to assure you of our readiness to partner with your good office in the noble course,” he said. “We are a leading advocate and partners in the war against substandard steel products in Nigeria, a menace that has led to the collapse of several buildings and the loss of several lives.

Royale pleaded with Saraki to work assiduously with other interested parties to guarantee that the Federal Government revived all of the nation’s dead steel rolling mills.

Additionally, he gave her responsibility for generating jobs, combating the trend of growing prices, boosting Nigeria’s economic expansion, and significantly lessening the threat posed by subpar steel goods.

Royale remarked, “We wish the Hon. Minister of State for Mines and Steel, a fruitful time in office.”
