Prince Shuaibu Audu Engages About 200 Youths On Ad-hoc Steel Sector Activities

The Honourable Minister of Steel Development, Prince Shuaibu Abubakar Audu has engaged over 200 youths on Adhoc duties in industries, plants and agencies under the Federal Ministry of Steel Development across the country, according to Lizzy Okoji, Special Assistant on Media to the Minister of Steel Development.

This initiative Shuaibu says is in line with the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR of creating direct and indirect jobs, especially for the youths in the country.

Prince Audu said that the engaged youths would assist in various capacities in some of the steel plants as plans to revive the industry is underway with productions of iron rods in Ajaokuta Steel Plant to kickstart in full force as soon as possible.

“We have a lot of Human Resources in the country with great potentials and technical know how, and now is the time to engage as we are fully set to rolling out our steel plants again.

“I have had several engagements with prospective investors who have shown interest in reviving the various components of the moribund Ajaokuta Steel plant, Delta Steel Plant in Aladja, amongst other steel plants in the country.

“Reviving these plants means more hands on deck to help with the job. This again is in line with the vision of our President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR of creating job opportunities, increasing local productions to boost Nigeria’s export capacities and industrializing Nigeria through the Steel Sector.

"Hopefully, when the window of employment opens, these young energetic Nigerians among others would be duly employed in line with the provisions and guidelines of the Federal Civil Service Commission," the media statement from the Minister's office further said.
