steel plant started in the late 70s at the same time when the first
steel plant in India was built by the Russians. Since then the Indians
has advanced in their steel technology while Nigerians are still
scratching their heads on whether to abandoned the steel plant or sell
it to other Countries to manage. Nigerian trained lots of professionals
since then to be able to take over from the Russians and moved the steel
Most of the Engineers trained in the
former Soviet Union then are one of the best in Engineers in the world
today. Those who decided to go back to Nigeria to developed their Nation
faced the reality of life. They soon realized that staying in Ajaokuta
steel plant is educational death sentenced because all the knowledge
they acquired in Russia would not be needed. 98 percent of those who
came home were just going to their offices signing attendance.
Nigerian Government failed to provide innovative minds of those experts
trained then. After a while some of them left Ajaokuta to go into
University to lecture because they envisioned that Ajaokuta was a dead
end road. Those who remained were systematically retired or fired
because the Government do not want to continue to pay them salary. In
the first place it was the Government who failed to put money where it
belongs. Big budgets were allocated to Ajaokuta steel plant one
hundredths of those money never made it to the plants. It was diverted
for big shots used. The first Managing Director of Ajaokuta Steel plant
was Dr. Ezeminary he had Ph.D meteorology which is the study of weather.
Since we have ill informed leaders. Shagari who was only a grade two
teacher then before becoming a President could not differentiate between
meteorology and metallurgy to him they both sound the same. He was
hired to oversee the steel plant. I know in Nigeria you can be a Medical
Doctor and be employed in the Bank as a Bank Manager or Cashier.
Anything goes in Nigeria. Even getting a job in Nigeria does not go by
merits is all about who you know. You can get a degree in toilet
maintenance in Nigeria and be placed as the head of the Military
Intelligence. That is too good at least he has a degree. How many of the
Governors Senators, House of Representatives in Nigeria who do not have
a good Secondary School education? So many of them. Meanwhile you have
millions of Nigerian graduates roaming the street with first class honor
without a job. Some of those first class honors took a job as Aid
Assistance to all of this big shots who can not read and write. This Aid
Assistance are not been used in the right way. This Aid Assistance are
being used by this illiterate leaders to look for different kind of
young girls that they would relax with at one hotel or the other.
Meanwhile, these same illiterates, have two or three wives at home.
The well educated ones becomes servant to our so called illiterate
leaders. In the morning, all you see them doing is carrying the bags of
the Alhajis and Alhajas, Chiefs, Ogas etc. The brain that were supposed
to be challenged are been wasted because of lack of vision to steer our
Nation in the right direction. This is a clear order of the day in
Nigeria para status. Those Nigerians who left the Country to other part
of the world were able to compete with other counterparts to be experts
in their fields. I would site just a few examples. The best trained
Engineers in Canada and United States right now in the field of
Metallurgy and Chemical Engineers are Nigerians. There was a problem in
one of the steel plant in Canada, this problem existed for the past 10
years. They could not get an expert to resolve the issue. A young
vibrant Ph.D. holder in Metallurgy trained in Russian as an Engineer
resolved the problem. He is one of the Directors of steel plant now in
the United States. He is a son of our land. I mean and Ebira man. Dr.
Sunday A. Okomanyi. With his last name you should know that is one of
us. We have others that I could not mentioned their names if not I would
be writing till tomorrow.
Nigeria lacked real patriotic
Nigerians. It started from the top to the bottom. Corruption is the
order of the day in Nigeria. Those who do not want to be corrupt are
forced out of their jobs if they serve in a sensitive position where
they are blocking the chances for others to be corrupt. Or they are
forced to be corrupt when they see what others are doing.
forward, for the Ajaokuta steel plant to succeed. Nigerian Government
must be committed to spend the money on the steel plant to bring the
plant into completion. Those who are in any way accountable for the
welfare of the company must be held accountable. A time line must be
stipulated for the completion of the steel plants. Engineers must be
retrained for the new technological advancement. Engineers in our
Country must have dialogue with other innovative minds of their
Counterparts in other parts of the world. Knowledge must be shared among
the expertise. A genuine teams must be set to evaluate the development
of the steel every six months. This would not be a team that would
accept cut backs to lie for the managements. If we are all ready for
this, then we can call the Russians back to engage in the development of
the plants. The Government must be committed if not Ajaokuta is just
another Ghost town.
