President Muhammadu Buhari will commission the multi-billion dollar Dangote before he leaves office in May, 2023, the company has said.
A statement by Anthony Chiejina, Group Chief, Branding & Communications Officer, Dangote Industries Limited, said this in Lagos, while responsible to some misleading reports regarding the commissioning of our Dangote Refinery during the working visit of President Buhari to Lagos State.
Part of the statement read: “We want to state categorically that our 650,000 barrels per day (bpd) Refinery project was never part of the President’s programme on projects to be commissioned.
“For the record, the projects slated for commissioning in Lagos State by President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR include: Lekki Deep Sea Port; 32-Metric Tonnes Lagos Rice Mill, Imota; 18.75km Eleko to Epe T Junction Express road; John Randle Centre for Yoruba Culture and History, Onikan, Blue Line Rail (Phase 1) commissioning (Marina to Mile 2); Groundbreaking for the Blue Line Rail Phase 2 (Mile 2 to Okokomaiko), and MRS Lubricant, a private project in Apapa.”
It added that the public will be duly informed and invited to the commissioning.
