ASHENEWS reports that the Dangote Group of Companies has described the reports that the Dangote Refinery, would be commissioned during the working visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to Lagos State as misleading.
The Group Chief of Branding and Communications at Dangote Industries Limited, Anthony Chiejina, stated this in a statement obtained by ASHENEWS on Tuesday.
“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 formally leaves office in May 2023, and the public will be duly informed and invited to the epic event,” the statement reads.
