Like I always do, whenever there’s an interesting information about a brand, product or service, even business innovation in Nigeria that you’re unaware of, I ‘scoop’ it and serve it HOT for your reading pleasure!
So, the Vice-President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo who was on working visit to the site of Dangote Refinery projects at Lekki Free Trade Zone in Lagos in company with Ministers of Finance; Power, Works and Housing; Solid Minerals Development as well as the Minister of State for Trade and Investments expressed amazement at the size of the projects and reiterated government’s preparedness to provide enabling environment for businesses to thrive.
The Dangote Refinery, Petrochemicals and fertilizers reportedly reputed to be the biggest in Africa when completed offers hopes in the quest for diversification of Nigeria’s economy from total dependence on oil to other areas like Agriculture and Solid minerals.
It was gathered that, by the time the project is completed there will be opportunity to take on agriculture and say goodbye to poverty, because there will be jobs, no sector has more job potential than agriculture.
The $12 billion refinery is said to have a capacity of 650,000 barrels per day when completed.
