President Muhammadu Buhari will on May 22 commission the Dangote Refinery in Lagos State.
This was disclosed by Buhari’s Special Assistant on Digital Communications, Bashir Ahmad.
Ahmad said the 650,000 barrels per day refinery would boost the Federal Government’s effort to make Nigeria self-sufficient.
Tweeting, Ahmad wrote: “Efforts by the Federal Government to make Nigeria self-sufficient in local refining of crude oil to save the scarce foreign exchange used in the importation of petroleum products have received a boost as the 650,000 barrels per day Dangote Refinery, the world’s largest single-train refinery, is set for inauguration on May 22nd, 2023, by President Muhammadu Buhari.”
Verity News had reported that the Dangote Group announced plans to launch the refineries.
