Aliko Dangote, a Nigerian billionaire and the richest person in Africa, has thanked President Bola Tinubu for his assistance in making the Dangote Petrochemical Refinery a reality.

The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited, the Nigerian Upstream Petroleum Regulatory Commission (NUPRC), the Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority (NMDPRA), and Nigerians as a whole were all thanked equally by the founder of the Dangote Group for their unwavering belief in the massive project.

This is stated in a statement that was posted early on Saturday, January 13, 2023, on the company’s X (formerly Twitter) account.

The multibillion dollar Dangote Refinery, which is situated in Lagos, Nigeria’s economic hub, has officially started production, the corporation recently revealed.

Production of aviation fuel and diesel fuel started early on Friday, January 12, 2024, as part of the historic project.

“We thank President Bola Tinubu for his support and for making our dream come true. Without his creative leadership and quick attention to detail, this production would not have been conceivable as it is now,” Dangote stated.

In addition, he expressed his appreciation for the host communities’ and their traditional leaders’ collaboration on the project, bankers and financiers, and the Lagos State Government, led by Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

“Today is significant for Nigeria.” It brings us great pleasure to have accomplished this important goal. This shows that we are capable of planning and completing major capital projects, which makes it a significant accomplishment for our nation. This will affect everything for our nation,” he continued.

The Refinery can load 2,900 trucks per day onto its truck-loading gantries, according to the firm, and its goods will meet Euro V standards.

The World Bank, US EPA, European, and DPR emission/effluent standards are all met by the facility’s design, according to the statement.

Days after the Refinery received its sixth installment of the one million barrels of crude cargo needed to start up, this development has occurred.

The 650,000 barrel-per-day plant has the potential to impact Nigeria’s economy significantly by reducing the nation’s need on imported fuel when it is fully operational.
