Premium Steel to begin production soon, says CEO
…Appeals for cooperation from stakeholders
Chief Executive Officer of Premium Steel and Mines Limited, formerly called Delta Steel Company, Ovwian-Aaldja, Prasanta Mishra, has assured that production would begin at the Aladja Complex before the end of this year, as ongoing resuscitation process with attendant challenges, is now at advanced stage.
Mishra therefore called on the host communities and all stakeholders to cooperate with the company to enable it achieve the vision of the Federal Government for self-sufficiency in steel production, and strong technological base for Nigeria.
Addressing newsmen at the plant on Sunday, he disclosed that the company was pursuing the resuscitation programme with all the aggression it deserves, so as to fling open the door of employment for the teeming army of unemployed but qualified youths roaming the streets of Nigerian towns and villages.
He maintained that in the short period Premium Steel took over the former DSC, the company has impacted positively in various areas of needs of the host communities.
Specifically, he said Premium Steel has voted huge sum of money to intervene in the educational and health needs of the people through provision of critical facilities to tackle the challenges being faced by the people in those sectors and many others.
He added that while PSML will continue to pay attention to Corporate Social Responsibility and other activities, the communities were bound to reap immense benefits from the company once production begins.
He therefore appealed to the people to support the resuscitation programme and discourage actions, activities and utterances capable of hampering the laid out programme of actions designed to speed up plans for production to begin.
