  • Description

    PRESIDENT NKRUMAH OF GHANA CUT THE FIRST SOD AND UNVEILED A COMMEMORATIVE PLAQUE JUNE 2ND, ON THE SITE NEAR TEMA WHERE A BRITISH FIRM WILL CONSTRUCT A GBP1 1/2-MILLION STEEL MILL, TO BE CALLED THE "NKRUMAH STEEL WORKS".

    IN HIS INAUGURAL SPEECH, PRESIDENT NKRUMAH SAID: "I HAVE ALWAYS HELD THE VERY STRONG OPINION THAT TO EXPEDITE OUR INDUSTRIALISATION, GHANA MUST GO IN FOR THE BASIC INDUSTRIES SO AS TO FORGE THE MACHINES AND TOOLS FOR BUILDING OTHER INDUSTRIES."
    THE PLANT WILL TAKE TWO YEARS TO COMPLETE, AND MORE THAN 300 PEOPLE WILL BE EMPLOYED ON ITS CONSTRUCTION. WHEN COMPLETED, IT WILL COVER AN AREA OF ABOUT ONE-MILE SQUARE, AND IS EXPECTED, TO PRODUCE ABOUT 20,000 TONS OF STEEL ANNUALLY.
