President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday described the Dangote Refinery as a significant milestone for Nigeria’s economy and a game changer for the downstream petroleum products market in the entire African region.
The president inaugurated the refinery in Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos, which is expected to enable Nigeria to achieve self-sufficiency in refined products and even have a surplus for export.
A statement by Femi Adesina,
special adviser to the President
on Media & Publicity, said that Mr Buhari made the declaration while speaking at the commissioning of the refinery.
