Ghana cannot maximize the full potential of the oil industry without a vibrant salt industry.

This is according to the Chairman of the Institute of  Engineering and Technology Rev. Dr.Engineer E. L Ankrah.

There was a lot of hope when Ghana started oil exploration that sallt industry will be a major beneficiary as Salt is an essential ingredient in the mining  sector.

It however appears that that promise for the salt industry has not materialize.

Dr. Ankra says Ghana's multi- million dollar salt industry is only wasting away.

Dr. Ankra added that salt is a backbone of the oil industry.
