The Superintendent for Governmental Affairs at Arcelor Mittal in Sanniquellie, Nimba County has debunked rumors that the company is about to phase out of Liberia.

“Arcelor Mittal is not leaving Liberia now,” Ambrose Gbormie clarified in his remarks at the end of a stakeholder engagement forum under the auspices of the steel giant in Sanniquellie Tuesday.

Gbormie told the 40 stakeholders that the company will stay in the country in compliance with its contractual agreement and in fulfillment of its social corporate responsibility to the people of Nimba and Liberia at large.

He assured the gathering and the citizens of the county that “the rumors are not true.”

He added that the Yekepa Vocational Technical Training Center (VTC) reconstructed by Arcelor Mittal in 2014 will soon become operational to absorb and train over 100 students in auto mechanics, heavy duty mechanics, drafting and electricity, among other, trades.
