Electrochem Salt Mine to employ 7,000 youth, says McDan

Phase one of the project has so far employed 3,000 youth, bringing some vibrancy into the local economy in Sege in the Ada West district

The group chairman of McDan Group Daniel McKorley is optimistic that the Songor salt project operated by Electrochem Ghana Ltd will employ about 7,000 youth when the final phase is completed.

Phase one of the project has so far employed 3,000 youth bringing some vibrancy into the local economy in Sege in the Ada West district.

Speaking at the official commissioning of the Electrochem Salt Mine and Processing Plant at Ada on Wednesday (30 August), McKorley said the project will be a game changer.

“People asked me questions, and I could see in their eyes the doubt of revamping this project,” he said. “The question they ask me is, ‘can you do it?’ It sent a wavering fear in my spine, we have been bashed, misquoted, misrepresented, but as a torch bearer I kept focus.”

“Entrepreneurs must be brave to make impact…, the project is going to change this country and the Ada community as a whole. This is bringing serious economic benefit that the youth will enjoy.

“As we speak we have employed 3,000 youth in this place, as we move to Ada East, we are employing 3,000 more. By the end of this project, we are looking at employing 7,000 youth. I have never seen a single project in this country employ so many people like this,” McKorley said.
