Aggrieved Community Leaders Call President Buhari To Order
President Muhammadu Buhari was yesterday petitioned by Aladja Steel Complex host communities in Udu Local Government Area of Delta State over what they called “total neglect of the old Delta Steel Company by the Federal Government”.
In a letter by their leaders:
Ovwian community’s President General Paul Odiete
Orhuwhorun community’s President General Pius Tuphe
Aladja community’s President General Ellias Dogene ;
The letter reads: “It is to be noted that in 2005, concession was given to GSHL and consequently terminated in 2008 due to non-compliance and non-obligation towards payment to the Federal Government. Also, between 2005-2008, GSHL could hardly produce approximately 2 to 3 million tonnes from Itakpe mines.”
