Akwa Ibom State Governor, Governor Udom Emmanuel has come out to say that the Aluminium Smelter Company of Nigeria, ALSCON will stimulate the entire economy in the country.

He recently revealed this when the Minister of State, Mines and Steel Development, Dr Uchechukwu Ogah, paid him a visit on Thursday, at Government House, Uyo.

His words, “As a state, we are willing to give all the necessary support so that the project can actually come on stream. Trust that we will work together and we will make it work, it is in the interest of the country, it is in the interest of the masses, it will help our economy.”

The President has mandated that ALSCON should be reactivated as soon as possible, so we believe that before the end of this administration ALSCON will be running.
