The recruitment exercise, according to Komla, is to part of the Company’s objective of contributing to Ghana’s economic growth through job creation and honouring tax obligations.

Dangote Cement is set to recruit 1000 workers, mainly track drivers, thereby increasing its staff strength in Ghana to 1,700.

As part of the expansion programme, 1000 brand-new-trucks would soon be added to the company’s fleet of vehicles and recruited drivers assigned to one truck, the Media Relations Manager of the company, Mr Etornam Komla, told the Daily Graphic in an interview published on Wednesday June 29.

“We’ve stated the recruitment exercise and by the end of July, all of the drivers will be on board,” Komla said.

The recruitment exercise, according to Komla, is part of the company’s objective of contributing to Ghana’s economic growth through job creation and honouring tax obligations.

The company has also invested over $100 million in the construction of a new plant in Takoradi in the Western Region.

The plant will have the capacity to produce about 1.5 million tonnes of cement.

The move is part of the company’s strategy to expand and meet growing demands in Ghana and across West Africa.

Owner of the company, Aliko Dangote, is planning to shift focus from cement business to oil and gas.

He plans to set up a $12 billion oil refinery with a capacity of 650,000 barrels a day in Nigeria.

Mr. Dangote told Reuters the $12bn refinery will be ready at the beginning of 2019.

"It will be ready in the first quarter of 2019.”

"Mechanical completion will be end of 2018 but we will start producing in 2019," he added.

Dangote also has plans for a gas pipeline through West Africa, Reuters adds.

Dangote plans to build cement plant in eight Africa countries.

But the company’s operation in Ghana has been hit by series of agitation from workers.

They accuse the company of neglecting the wellbeing of the over 700 employees.
