Nigeria will have refinery by 2023 – Dangote

The president of Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote, said he is hopeful that his refinery would commence operation by 2023.

Responding directly to Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, the Africa’s richest man, while speaking with journalists at Ewohimi, Esan South East Local Government Area of Edo State, at the 10-year remembrance service of Pa Jeremiah Ighodalo, revealed that plans are in top gear to have the refinery fully operational and providing petroleum products to Nigerian markets by next year.

Obaseki recently lamented that it is a shame Nigeria is still involved in the importation of petroleum products despite being one of the largest producers of crude oil in the world.
