What You Don’t Know About The Ajaokuta Steel Company In Kogi State

The Ajaokuta Steel Company is located in Kogi State, middle-belt Nigeria. For over 40 years of existence, the company has been unproductive due to some unexplainable reasons. The good news to Nigerians now is that, after decades, $8 Billion Ajaokuta steel company's engines are beginning to steam, low scale production has started, the plant can produce nearly 10 million metric tons of steel per annum, create an estimated 500 thousand jobs, generate 110MW of electricity (70MW more than it needs), potentially cut $10Bn  imports per annum.

Railway lines, River Niger dredging, Inland Ports construction and development of crucial components to facilitate production are on course.
