THE ECONOMIC IMPLICATION OF PRIVATIZATION AND COMMERCIALIZATION OF AILING INDUSTRIES IN NIGERIA (A CASE STUDY OF THE ALUMINIUM SMELTER COMPANY, NOW KNOWN AS RUSAL ALUMINUM SMELTER COMPANY, IKOT ABASI)

1.1 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
For sometimes now in Nigeria and in Akwa Ibom State, public companies have been badly managed and often times inefficiently run.
Based on data from various government departments, public enterprises consumed as much as N265 billion within one year. In Past years, the Adeso (1969), Udoji (1973), Onosode (1981) and ALhakim (1984) commissions assessed and determined that public enterprises are responsible for huge wastages in funds which create budgetary strains and avoidable burden on the economy.
From the above studies, failures of government owned enterprises are because agents within government have a tendency to pursue their own interest or the interest of special groups at the expense of the public.
Also, the lack of effective strategies characterized by political instability, poor technology, lack of basic infrastructure, over politicization of projects and widespread incompetence in the management of public enterprises, is a function of excessive government participation in the management process.
Thus a combination of inadequate and costly gas supplies for electricity, lack of transportational access for the transfer of raw materials and finished products and untimely release of funds by government also lead to the closure of the Aluminiun Smelter Company of Ikot Abasi in the year 2000.
From the fore goings above, it thus became a national policy imperative therefore to disengage the public sector from those areas where the private sector has the comparable advantage to perform by turning around poorly managed and cash strapped state enterprises, whose inefficiencies have hampered economic development, thereby stopping the monumental waste and inefficiency of the public enterprise sector. This necessitated the need for government to set up the programmes of privatization and commercialization so as to address peculiar socio-economic and political conditions in Nigeria as part of the country’s structural adjustment programme.
This concept by the government, in restructuring the economy has thus prompted this research in ascertaining the economic implications of privatization and commercialization of ailing industries in Akwa Ibom State with particular reference to the Aluminium Smelter Company of Ikot Abasi.
