Contributing to the host Community

The Township provides needed housing for the employeesThe Township provides needed housing for the employeesMr. Peter Waschka, ALSCON's General Manager, noted that 'as well as meeting the various FEPA requirements, the company will always be interested in the general development and well being of the local community'.

 

To many Ikot Abasi people, the saying 'once a person has put on loin cloth, he does not go nude again', holds true. The town which saw the opulence of slave

trade, that of the oil palm trade and the civilising influence of Christian missionaries in the 18th and the 19th centuries, cannot but embrace the commercial and industrial activities of the 20th century.

 

Elder Okpoho Ekpo, ALSCON's Assistant General Manager (Administration) and a native of Ikot Abasi, gives ALSCON a high score for the positive contribution the company has made so far in the lives of his people:

As a major industrial establishment, the Aluminium Smelter Plant is bound to have a tremendous impact on the physical and socio-economic development of Ikot Abasi. The site of the plant which was, until the commencement of construction work, swampy and marshy, has been transformed into habitable environment with modern architectural structures and roads'.

According to Elder Ekpo, the area has witnessed an unprecedented influx of people engaged in construction work in the plant and residential areas. The plant has exerted a pull on many financial institutions to town and caused an increase in the number of nursery schools and health institutions.

 

Elder Ekpo further observes that community life which had been gentle and unhurried before the advent of the company, has now taken on a different appearance as many local businesses have geared up to provide for the entertainment and services for the many new people coming to town.

 

ALSCON's direct assistance to the Ikot Abasi community has been evident. It includes a 100 kVA Electricity Generating Set to the Ikot Abasi General Hospital and the repair of the hospital's ambulance. Six (6) classroom blocks at the Ibekwe Secondary Commercial School were re-roofed along with the donation of furniture. The Ibekwe-Ikpetun road was also tarred. All these actions, as well as the provision of some education scholarships as well as the improvements to Ikot Abasi's electricity supply system and the local Police Station amenities, demonstrate the company's devotion to the host community.

 

Expressing their appreciation, the Ikpa Ibekwe community on whose land the Ikot Abasi Smelter Plant is located, told recently the Hon. Minister of Power and Steel, ALSCON Chairman, Alhaji Bashir Dalhatu: 'We are happy to re-emphasise that the siting of ALSCON in Ikot Abasi has rekindled our faith in and loyalty to our country. It has brought us a new lease of life; it has generated employment to thousands of people; our despair has been turned to hope and our sorrows to joy. For this, we thank the experts for recommending our lands for this project'.

 

Today, at the time of the Commissioning of the ALSCON Smelter, Ikot Abasi can look to the future with optimism. The region has gained long-term employment, training and education for its people, higher living standards and new down-stream and up-stream industries. Ikot Abasi, having experienced both success and hard-times in the past, has gained back its importance and, has earned, with hard work, the name 'The Aluminium Town of Nigeria'.

A few puppy proprietors either don't comprehend these laws or don't think their canine will give that sort of damage to anybody; proprietors may well be rebuffed for neglecting to limit the pooch and will be rebuffed if the puppy were to assault someone. punaise de lit traitement
