Dangote speaks on Buhari’s visit to Lagos, Refinery commissioning

Alhaji Aliko Dangote

Management of Dangote Industries Limited has dismissed as misleading, reports regarding the commissioning of the Dangote Refinery during the visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to Lagos on Monday and Tuesday.

According to a statement by Anthony Chiejina, the Dangote Group’s Chief, Branding & Communications Officer, “the 650,000 barrels per day (bpd) Refinery project was never part of the President’s programme on projects to be commissioned.”

He said, however, that the Refinery will be commissioned before the President formally leaves office in May this year.

Full text of the statement reads:

PRESS STATEMENT

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 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.

However, our 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.

Signed:

Anthony Chiejina

Group Chief, Branding & Communications Officer, Dangote Industries Limited
