Lieutenant General (retd) Abdul Qayyum is a former Pakistani general officer who is noted for the turnaround of Pakistan Steel Mills where he presided for three years. He was commissioned in artillery division of Pakistan Army in 1968 and is a war veteran. His important assignments during service were instructor at the National Defence College unit commander in Royal Saudi Land Forces and military secretary with two Prime Ministers. He also commanded an infantry brigade and an artillery division.

Experience with Pakistan Ordnance Factories


General Qayyums last appointment while in uniform was chairmanship of the Pakistan Ordnance Factories which he took over in September 1998. It is a massive industrial undertaking comprising 14 plants responsible for serving all of Pakistans military requirements. Prior to his appointment this industrial complex was noted within Pakistans borders and to a few developing countries. Under Qayyums leadership a global marketing strategy was implemented resulting in POF becoming a successful supplier of arms and their spares to Germany Ireland the United Kingdom Switzerland and the United States. He retired from Pakistan Army in January 2004 and was subsequently given charge of Pakistan Steel Mills. He was replaced by Major General Muhammad Javed as the chairman of POF.

Experience at Pakistan Steel Mills

At retirement Abdul Qayyum was made the chairman of the board of Pakistan Steel. He was made chairman in place of Lt Col (retd) Muhammad Afzal Khan of the 29th PMA Long Course who died prematurely. In fact the turnaround of Pakistan Steel Mills was initiated by Afzal Khan who took over the management in 1999.

When Gen Qayyum took over Pakistan Stell was riddled in debt tainted with charges of corruption and in a state of disrepair due to bad management and lack of capital investment. Within two years the chairman managed to clear Pakistan Steel of all debts and signed an agreement with Transparency International to remove any stigma of corruption associated with the Organization. Furthermore he successfully implemented a Quality Management System (QMS) resulting in ISO accreditation in five separate areas. Under Abdul Qayyums leadership Pakistan Steel achieved its highest profitability in two consecutive years. These achievements were critical in attracting 19 International bidders for Pakistan Steels privatization.

He was replaced again by Maj Gen (retd) Muhammad Javed as PSM chairman in September 2006.

Hello, Good Day. Kindly permit me to write you my ordeal and such seek your assistance. I am Mrs. Fielder Maike from Germany but presently in the hospital for my operation. I married to late Mr. Gebson Fielder Porray, who was the ambassador of Germany in Ghana. We were posted Ghana for 12yrs mission in Accra Ghana, but it was unfortunate that my late husband passed away without returning back to our country alive. Due to I have engaged myself in the work of the lord in this country; I decided to return back to continue the fellowship of the lord by helping the charities organization, basically the poor. I have a donation to make which I will need your assistance to carry it out for me, I will be 46 years old this coming july 26, a widow and a servant of the Lord for the past 28 years in Ghana, Africa.

I will be happy to meet Him where He wants me to be. This is the favour I need when you have gotten the money: - Give 70% of the money to Charity organizations, orphanage homes and Churches on my name so that my soul may rest in peace.

Ex generals are good spokesmen, know how put their point forward in an impeccable way. Only problem is they are very corrupt & they don’t speak up when in service.
