The APC Central Senatorial Flag bearer, Alh Yakubu Oseni(AYO) Dispeled the rumour on the sale of Ajaokuta Steel Plant.
Oseni while responding to a questions from News men recently in his Lokoja residence stated that,the clarification on rumoured sale became necessary on the heel of the speculation that the CBN Governor was reported in some dailies that Ajaokuta steel has been slated for sale to raised fund for 2019 Budget.
The Truth is that, thanks to the Vice President ,Osinbajo who cleared the air on the sale of Ajaokuta steel project. The current Federal Government under the Leadership of Muhammad Buhari and Yemi Osinbajo are focus and purposeful Government,they knew that STEEL PLANT is a bedrock to the development of any Nation.They have since ordered the disc ussion with the original builder “TPE”.If anybody had fed something else into the rumour mill, treat it as rumour and
am assuring you all that,the Ajaokuta project is part and parcel of Mr President Buhari second term project come 2019 Insha Allah.
According to Oseni, if and when eventually voted to represent us at the red chamber, himself and other Senators from Kogi State will stand together to mobilize all the Senators from the north to see the Ajaokuta steel plant as a northern project, otherwise there is nothing an individual or a senator representing the zone can do because Ajaokuta steel is a Federal Government Project.
The APC flag bearer thank His excellency Alh yahya Bello for his stand on the issue and equally extend his appreciation to elders in Kogi State.
