Businessman Daniel Nii McKorley (MacDan) has said, People who are against a contract handed to one of his companies, Electrochem Ghana Limited, to mine salt at Ada in the Greater Accra region, do not love Ghana.
He stated that the project provides jobs to over 1000 young people in the neighborhood, allowing them to keep their bodies and minds together, and that no attempt should be made to derail the project.
As part of its attempts to expand the economy, Elecrtochem has secured a 15-year concession for salt mining.
Wednesday April 20, Dr Mc Korley said “This contract has nothing to do with politics, it is all about development. Right now, as we speak over 200 youth are working in this concession, they will make money at the end of the day , they will be off the streets.
“Anybody who is really against this project or who wants to give bad publicity about this project, I don’t think the person loves Ghana.
“Which project will you get like this, which is going to employ 1000 youths in this community and you give it bad publicity? Then you don’t love Ghana.
“Every time we are crying that we need jobs, job had arrived and because of somebody’s selfish interest interest, you will give bad publicity about this project. Then what about me the investor who is about pumping 106million dollars in the first phase of this project?”
