Olushola Okunlade Writes
Dangote Group has reacted to misleading reports that its Refinery project was commissioned on Monday by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Anthony Chiejina, Group Chief, Branding & Communications Officer, Dangote Industries Limited pointed out today that: “Our attention has been drawn to some misleading reports regarding the commissioning of our Dangote Refinery during the present working visit of President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR to Lagos State.
“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 that were commissioned.
He said: “For the record, the projects that were commissioned 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.
While concluding, Chiejina assured that Dangote Refinery will be commissioned before President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR formally leaves office in May 2023, and the public will be duly informed and invited to the epic event.
