Dangote refinery set for commissioning May 22


There are reports that the world’s largest single-train refinery, the Dangote Refinery, is set for inauguration by President Muhammadu Buhari on May 22, 2023.

This will come as a huge relief to Nigerians and stakeholders who have been looking forward to the commencement of operations of the refinery to help complement the efforts of the Federal Government to make Nigeria self-sufficient in local refining of petroleum products and save the scarce foreign exchange used for their importation.

According to Thisday, this was confirmed by a source at the refinery on Saturday night, noting that the refinery has been completed with pre-inauguration tests currently ongoing.

The source disclosed that President Buhari would inaugurate the plant on Monday, May 22, 2023.
