Message from the honourable minister of power & steel Alscon chairman

The Ikot Abasi Aluminium Smelter project are significant in many respects. In the first place, the Smelter will, and has already started to, stimulate socio-economic activities in Ikot Abasi and this, in turn, will contribute to the upliftment of the general well-being of the people of the area. Secondly, the project has re-kindled in the people the hope for a better tomorrow; hope that their lost glory will, with time, be restored.

 

There is, however, the fear that the people of Ikot Abasi may relax, and possibly abandon their usually-serious way of life in the belief that the Smelter will automatically solve all their problems.

 

My message, therefore, is that the good people of Ikot Abasi, and the entire staff of the Aluminium Smelter Company of Nigeria (ALSCON) Ltd., should always regard themselves as members of one large family (enlarged Ikot Abasi community); and they should also work really hard for the realisation of their expectations.

 

Finally, I would like to commend this well-research and important web site to all the people: historians, researchers, students, etc. who have interest in transformation of traditional African societies.

 

Alhaji Bashir Dalhatu, (Walin Dutse), Hon. minister of Power & Steel/ALSCON Chairman
