“Ajaokuta was designed and built with the assistance of Ukrainian engineers in Soviet era.

“Our company is participating in the renewal of the plant because Nigeria needs industrialization and Ajaokuta after rehabilitation will play very important roles in the  industrialization of Nigeria,” he added.
