Businessman Daniel Nii McKorley (MacDan) has said persons who are against the contact awarded to one of his companies, Electrochem Ghana Limited, to mine salt at Ada in the Greater Accra region, do not love Ghana.
He said the project is offering jobs to over 1000 youth of the area to enable them keep body and soul together therefore no attempt should be made to destroy the project.
Elecrtochem secure a 15-year lease for salt mining as part of efforts to grow the economy.
In a TV3 documentary titled Salt City compiled by Joseph Armstrong and aired on 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?”
