The Ada West District Assembly has recognised the contribution of Electrochem Ghana Limited to the development of Ada, in the Greater Accra Region, considering their increasing investment in the operational areas.

The Coordinating Director of the Assembly, Aaron Otoo, at a visit to Electrochem’s salt mining site, at Sege, noted that the facility is beyond what they had envisaged before their familiarization tour.

He said the Assembly, which is one of the two assemblies that hosts the company, “will play its part as a partner in development for the common good of the Ada state.”

The Coordinating Director described the rapid development of the site, ongoing effort to restore the Songor Lagoon to its natural ecological state, the volume of work that is going into restructuring the site, and the strides made within the period as worthy and positive.

“We fully support what you are doing and look forward to working in a close collaboration for the common good of the Ada state,” he added.

The Lead Consultant for Electrochem Ghana, Dzigbordi Kwaku-Dosoo, while conducting the Assembly officials around the site, noted that the company’s strategy is to put community interest before commercial interest.

She said: “that is why in just a year of operation, even before profit is made, we continue to roll out bespoke and impactful Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives in rapid succession.”

These include the ongoing construction of a multi-purpose sports village at Sege, disbursement of GH¢3 million interest-free loans to local women entrepreneurs, and a community water supply project among others.

She assured the Assembly of regular updates on the company’s operations and more effective collaboration to make the relationship mutually beneficial.

The Queen of the Royal Adibiawe Clan of Ada who doubles as the CSR Director of Electrochem, Naana Adiki Manyeyo Adi I, said the good intentions of the company for the people of Ada has started manifesting, making life far more interesting to many people.

She referred to the scholarships that were offered to students, rehabilitation of access roads in communities around the concession and the 20-unit toilet facility which was built and recently handed over to the Lolonya community.

Other officials from the Ada West District Assembly who participated in the tour included Emmanuel Dadzie, Physical Planning Officer; Charles Kissi Amakye, Head of Works; and Stella Kpodo, Development Planning Officer.

The rest of the officials are Jerry Torgbemiku; Deputy Director of NADMO; Abugri Cletus, Finance Officer; Felix Gotah, Budget Analyst; Ruby Banini, Environmental Health Officer; Ephriam Anku, Internal Auditor, and Daniel Kpo, the Environmental Health Officer.
