Inside The $80m Steel Company That Set To Create Over 2,000 Jobs

On Tuesday, 13th April 2021, the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo commissioned Phase One of the B5 Plus Steel Plant, an enterprise operating under Government’s One-District-One-Factory (1D1F) initiative. Where the President was was no record to have said;

"The plant is a concrete manifestation that the new paradigm of economic development, which this administration has been vigorously pursuing since 2017, of insisting on value-addition industrial activities within a conducive and business-friendly environment, is making headway".

The company which was inaugurated yesterday by B5 Plus Steel at Prampram is the biggest in West Africa and worth $80m set to create over 2,000 jobs in the country.

Good news, but don't let us forget that B5 Plus Steel company has been operating long time ago and belongs to Indians. It will create employment here though but don't let us make it sound like it's government achievement, please let's revive Nkrumahs factories and stop perching with already existing companies which are managed by foreigners who come to make profit and go.

B5 plus from some Ghanaians point of view, doesn't have good working relationship with workers in Ghana tagging the managers of the company as cruel, wicked and selfish, they are always cheating factory hand workers. Government should therefore look at the labour law and help the youth, who might get the opportunity working in the factory to get good salary or else the inauguration is cos ninety.

All the same this will solve some part of the unemployment issues but my problem is the prices of these steal products and the building materials as whole, hope this is going to impact the ordinary Ghanaian who wants to build as we are expecting reduction in cost. These days people are charging exorbitant prices which looks as there's no regulatory body in charge of controlling prices of goods in this country.

 Please Mr president do something about it because, Cement prices today in the country is outrageous.
