Dangote Industries Limited has dispelled the rumour that its refinery project was part of the projects commissioned by President Mohammadu Buhari on his two -day working visit to Lagos.

In a statement signed by the Group Chief, Brand and Communication Officer, Dangote Industries Limited, Mr Anthony Chiejina, yesterday, the company said even though the refinery would be commissioned before the president leaves office by May, it was yet to be commissioned contrary to misleading reports circulating round.

The statement reads, “Our attention has been drawn to some misleading reports regarding the commissioning of our Dangote Refinery during the present 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”, said Chiejina.

He however said the Refinery would be commissioned before President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR formally leaves office in May, 2023, and the public would be duly informed and invited to the epic event.
