Executive Chairman of Jospong Group of Companies (JGC), Joseph Siaw Agyepong, has commended the gallant workers of his outfit for the role they played in safeguarding lives of people living in Ghana.
According to him, but for the timely interventions and selfless dedication of the workers of Zoomlion Ghana Limited (ZGL), a subsidiary of JGC, even at the peril of their lives, the deadly Covid-19 would have overwhelmed the nation.
“The advent of the pandemic has altered our usual way of doing business which means that we must also adopt strategies that will be beneficial in this dispensation,” Dr Agyepong advised.
Speaking on the theme, “Building a Formidable Future Beyond Covid-19, at this year’s (2021) JGC Leadership Conference, Mr. Agyepong indicated the theme could be achieved only if all workers were unified and resolute about what they do.
He assured his staff of the Group’s resolve to equip each of them with computer literacy to enable them remain relevant in tandem with the fast growing global digitisation.
According to him, Zoomlion especially, was bent on ensuring its mandate in making President Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo’s vision of a cleaner Ghana a reality.
This, he said, the company will do by making major contributions to the national development agenda, particularly in the environmental sanitation sector.
In view of that, he noted 16 Integrated Recycling and Composting Plants (IRECOP) in all the sixteen regions of the country would be ready this year.
He also revealed work had commenced for the construction of the Tema, Sekondi-Takoradi and Tamale Waste Water Treatment Plants.
Mr. Agyepong said the long awaited Kumasi Composting and Recycling Plant (KCARP) designed to process 2400 tonnes of solid waste per day had also been commissioned by the President and was now operational.
He said the company intends to invest in the construction of 16 regional offices and an initial 100 district offices to provide staff with comfortable working environment.
He further announced the Group’s resolve to continue the implementation of what he termed, “One Million Waste Bin Project” and therefore appealed to Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies and other relevant stakeholders to ensure every household in the country has a waste bin to store its solid waste.
Again, he reiterated his commitment to lend the company’s support to the Church of Pentecost’s Environmental Care Campaign in a bid to ensure success as done in the past two years.
Mr. Agyepong was speaking at the 8th in
series of the Jospong Leadership Conference at the Ghana Armed Forces Command and Staff College on Monday, January 18, 2021.
