Dangote Refinery never billed for commissioning during Buhari’s recent visit to Lagos —Group

Dangote Industries Limited has said that its 650,000 barrels per day (bpd) refinery project was never part of the projects billed for commissioning by President Muhammadu during his last working visits to Lagos State few days ago.

The company, which debunked what it terms misleading report that was flying around regarding the commissioning of the refinery during the president’s working visit, said instead that the Dangote Refinery would be commissioned before President Buhari formally leaves office in May, this year.

The group, in a press statement signed by Mr. Anthony Chiejina, Group Chief, Branding & Communications Officer, states thus:

“Our attention has been drawn to some misleading reports regarding the commissioning of our Dangote Refinery during the 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.”
