Buhari to inaugurate Lekki Refinery before end of tenure, says Dangote

Dangote gave the assurance in an interview with State House correspondents on Friday after meeting with President Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The Chairman of the Dangote Group, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, has assured that the Dangote Petroleum Refinery would be ready for inauguration before President Muhammadu Buhari exits office in May 2023.

Dangote gave the assurance in an interview with State House correspondents on Friday after meeting with President Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He explained that when operational, the refinery would create jobs and generate more tax money for the country.

“It will be used by the government to develop the country further.

“In the near future they are expect to see more employment, they are expect to see more prosperity.

“We keep doing new things and good things and also we keep paying our taxes which will complement the government’s effort in providing education, good health and the rest,” Dangote, Africa’s richest man, said.

On the scarcity of potash as a result of the Russian/Ukrainian conflict, Dangote noted that only 26 percent of the world’s potash supply comes from the two countries.

“We are not concerned. There are some few other countries that have it, it is not only Ukraine that has it.

Yes, Ukraine and Russia have about 26 percent of the world’s potash, but it does not mean that you cannot source potash elsewhere.

“So I’m not really very concerned, the concern is just about price,” Dangote also said.
