Olamilekan Adegbite, the minister of Mines and Steel Development, says Ajaokuta Steel Company Limited will function to capacity before the end of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

Mr Adegbite made this known during the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) Forum in Abuja.

He said the federal government had made effort to ensure that the Russian company that built the steel industry would come to Nigeria to conduct technical audit of the company.

He said the Russian team would have been in Nigeria since 2020 for the technical audit but COVID-19 pandemic distorted the plan.

NAN recalls that the minister had earlier said that a 60-man team from Russia would arrive in Nigeria to start technical audit of Ajaokuta steel.

The agreement on how to revive the steel company was reached during a meeting between President Muhammadu Buhari and President Vladimir Putin in Russia in 2019.

The Russian government had nominated TPE, the original builder of Ajaokuta Steel Company, to conduct technical audit of the steel company to ascertain the level of work remaining to be completed on the steel company.

However, the minister said the main purpose of the steel company when it was conceived and built was to produce liquid steel, adding that the National Iron Ore Mining Company (NIOMCO) was set up at Itakpe in Kogi to feed it with iron ore.

He explained that liquid steel could be used for building aeroplane and car engine parts, among others.

“Ajaokuta Steel Company has not been able to produce liquid steel since it was built –the little hurdles we need to address.

“The steel company has worked in the past whereby billet were imported to produce reinforcement but that was not what Ajaokuta steel was built for,” he said.

He also said the ministry had recently trained some youths in the metal sub-sector on national development to ensure human capital development with special emphasis on vibrant metals operators.

He said the workshop was an appropriate strategy meant to launch and mainstream youths into the sector, adding that the three weeks intensive workshop was to work towards the development of the sector.

A project started almost 5 decades ago..
6 years into buharis presidency and he's still talking about bringing in the Russians to check a factory they have bought from the back, using some fantastic "foreign investors"..
That project is a cash cow for every government in Power..

No be today we don dey hear say Ajaokuta Steel plant will work.

I think it’s just Olamilekan Adegbite’s turn to tell the lie.

Just imagine that less than two years to Buhari’s administration, the Russians are yet to conduct auditing and the minister is telling us it will work before the end of the administration.

Only brainless zombies will believe the lie.

@the bolded,
This is a very good news to us.
We need more of human capital development all over our nation.
We hope this can cut across evey state in the federation.

Slow and steady,
Nigeria will be great in our lifetime.
God bless Nigeria, and all good and sane Nigerians.

Believe this joke at your own peril.

Truth be told, Buhari and his gang are the biggest comedians the world has seen . They have been playing practical and outrageous jokes on the people for past 6 years and some mumu people still believe them .

In the first line of the article, he said it will “ function to capacity before the end of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.”

...which is basically impossible.
