The Minister of information and culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said the Dangote Refinery will guarantee the availability of petroleum products in Nigeria.
The minister stated this on Sunday after a tour of the Dangote refinery, petrochemicals and fertilizer projects in Ibeju Lekki, Lagos.
According to him: “We have just been taken on a tour of what is undoubtedly one of the busiest construction sites in the world, the Dangote Refinery and Petrochemical Plant,”
“Before then, we visited the Dangote fertilizer plant and then the jetty.
“After visiting the facilities, one can conveniently say that Dangote is leading Nigeria’s industrial revolution.”
“The $19 billion refineries will be a game-changer once they come on stream in terms of employment generation and huge value addition that will contribute to the increase in gross domestic product,”
“It will also help in conservation of foreign exchange as there will be no more importation of petroleum products and generation of foreign exchange through export of the finished product.
“The refinery will guarantee the availability of petroleum products, thus ending petrol queues, and attract foreign capital investments,” Minister added.
