Okesola said that unless the steel industry was revived, unemployment problem in the country would persist.
“So, let the government ensure the revival of the steel companies scattered around the country.
Okesola added that apart from creating direct employment, the revival of the steel sector would also create indirect employment for millions of Nigerians. [eap_ad_2] According to him, the revival of the industry would definitely aid the growth of the country’s new automobile industry and the transformation of the epileptic Nigerian Railway Corporation.
“If the government can be sincere and focused; if they can pump money such that the steel industry will pick up, we will forget some of our current plagues,” he said.
The union’s secretary stated that lack of commitment, corruption and politicisation of the steel sector, were responsible for its ruin.
He added that the problems had also hindered all efforts to transform the industry. (NAN)[eap_ad_3]
