Dangote Group has debunked reports that President Muhammadu Buhari will inaugurate Dangote Refinery as part of his activities during a working visit to Lagos state.

The Company’s Group Chief, Branding & Communications Officer, Anthony Chiejina in a statement issued to Daily News 24 describe the reports as misleading.

The statement reads in parts;

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 GCFRinclude: 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.
