Says Refinery game changer for Nigeria’s economy

President Muhammadu Buhari has urged  great  Nigetian entrepreneurs to emulate the  iconic Nigerian industrialist, Alhaji Aliko Dangote and join the government in accelerating the  nation’s globally recognized economy potential
Buhari gave this admonition while commissioning the Dangote Petroleum Refinery in Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos.
Speaking at the occasion on Monday attended by Heads of State from Ghana, Togo, Niger, Senegal and a representative of the President of Chad, the President described the feat as a significant milestone for Nigeria’s economy and a game changer for the downstream petroleum products market in the entire African region.
President Buhari also cautioned Nigerians not to allow outside powers to use some of their leaders to destabilize our economic and political trajectory.

‘‘When I travel around Africa and meet and engage my brother Heads of State (and I am delighted some of their Excellences are here) I often sense a quiet expectation that our country is blessed with resources and human capacity to lead Africa’s rise to economic prosperity and the attainment of Agenda 2063 – ‘The Africa we all want.’

‘‘But to achieve the goals of Agenda 2063, Africa must come together – we must integrate our economies, eliminate barriers to trade and energize our youthful population to scale up our productive capacity.

‘‘We must create necessary conditions for our private sector to grow and partner with the public sector to accelerate economic growth across the continent.

President Buhari acknowledged the visionary investments made by the Dangote Group, under the leadership of Dangote, in transforming Nigeria’s economy through its involvement in critical industries such as cement and fertilizer.

He noted that investment in these sectors have played a crucial role in shifting Nigeria from heavy import dependence to becoming a net exporter.
