Son of Yaw Osafo-Maafo, the senior presidential advisor to Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has announced his employment with Dzata Cement Limited. The new fully-owned Ghanaian cement manufacturing company, which is owned by Ibrahim Mahama, brother of former president John Dramani Mahama, has started bagging production with a projection for three million tons of cement annually at full operational capacity.
This was disclosed after Trade and Industry Minister, Alan Kyeremanten, paid a day’s working visit to the over US$100 million investment located on a 10-acre land near the Tema Port earlier this week. In a tweet thread, Jones Kay Maafo, announced, “After passing out as an internationally recognized Occupational Safety and Health and Skills I have finally joined the Dzata Cement Limited family as an In House Doctor, Occupational Safety and Health Instructor and Medical Logistics Manager.”
He continued by expressing his gratitude to Ibrahim Mahama stressing, “I will forever grateful to Mr. Ibrahim Mahama for this position to work and learn from him.” Like many who have already started showing support for the business, Kay Maafo also called for people to help grow the business particularly because it is the only one owned by a Ghanaian.
“Let’s help support to grow this business since this cement is the only brand that is currently Ghanaian owned,” he tweeted. He also wrote that “Let’s put the politics aside and encourage, motivate Ghanaians who have big dreams. He has brought Dzata cement, forget that he’s NDC or NPP. He’s a Ghanaian.” Since the news of the opening of the Dzata Cement Limited, a number of big names within the New Patriotic Party (NPP) have commended Ibrahim Mahama for this great step, despite being affiliated with the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC). In various capacities, and in an admirable fashion, Alan Kyeremanten, Kennedy Agyepong, Gabby Otchere-Darko, and Yaw Osafo-Maafo have all praised Mr. Ibrahim for introducing the Dzata Cement producing plant, located on a 10-acre land near the Tema Port.
