The Assistant Superintendent for Development in Grand Gedeh County has revealed that the withdrawal of Putu Iron Ore Company is affecting the people and development drive of the county.

Speaking to this paper in the county, Abraham Gbeway said prior to the departure of the company, the livelihood of the citizens was good, but added that since the departure, the people have been experiencing the effects.

"The young people and working people in the area were employed by the company. The economy activities of the people were good during the time of the company," he said.

Gbeway said the company was meaningfully contributing to the social, economic viability of the county which according to him was a great help to the overall development agenda of the county.

"Putu as well was contributing to the education objectives of the county. The company was meaningfully helping to improve the communities in its operational areas and beyond," he added.

The Assistant Supt for development also lamented that the absence of the company is negatively impacting the development of the county because it was greatly contributing to the county.

"Putu not in operation and its inability to financially response. Because of the absence of Putu, most of the people working at the company are now leaving the county area," he indicated.

However, Gbeway felt short of stating what really went wrong for the departure of the county. It can be recalled Putu Iron Ore mining company operations in Konobo district, Grand Gedeh County reportedly left the country as a result of the fall in the price of iron ore on the world market.
