Dangote to Provide Lagos With Stable Electricity

The Founder/President of Dangote Group, Alhaji Aliko Dangote has said plans have been concluded to construct a gas pipeline to address power supply challenges in Lagos State.‎

Dangote disclosed this during a courtesy visit to the office of the Lagos State governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode. Addressing newsmen on the development, Dangote said, “We assured him that we are going to do a gas pipeline from Bonny (River State) to pass under the sea (to Lagos.) When it is completed, Lagos state will never ever experience blackout. There will be electricity 24 hours a day.”

Dangote said they also discussed the ongoing construction of the largest fertilizer plant of two to three million tonnes of Uranium and Ammonia in the Lekki Free Trade Zone, Ibeju-Lekki.

He noted that “the company is also building the largest ever single refinery of 650,000 barrels per day, which is by far more than the consumption of Nigeria and that would satisfy our consumption at least for the next seven to 10 years by the time we finish. We will have challenge in getting people to work there, because at the height of it, there will be close to 38,000 people working at the same location, this is something that we have to partner with the state government.”
