President Buhari Didn’t Commission Dangote Refinery

The Dangote Refinery has once again debunked the rumour being circulated in some sections of the media that President Muhammadu Buhari commissioned the refinery during his recent working visit to Lagos on Monday.

According to a statement signed by the Group Chief, Branding & Communications Officer, Dangote Industries Limited, Anthony Chiejina, said that the company’s 650,000 barrels per day (bpd) Refinery project was never part of the President’s programme on projects to be commissioned.

“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”, the statement reads.

“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”.

“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”.
