Dangote Group Chairman, Aliko Dangote said plans have been concluded to construct a gas pipeline to address power supply challenges in Lagos State.
Dangote who paid courtesy visit to Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode yesterday, June 10, 2015, said “We assured him that we are going to do a Gas Pipeline from Bonny (River State) to pass under the sea (to Lagos.) When it is completed, Lagos state will never ever experience blackout. There will be electricity 24 hours a day.”
Dagote also talked about the ongoing construction of the largest fertilizer plant of two to three million tonnes of Uranium and Amonia in the Lekki Free Trade Zone, Ibeju-Lekki.
According to him, “the largest ever single refinery of 650,000 barrels per day, which is by far more than the consumption of Nigeria and that would satisfy our consumption at least for the next seven to 10 years by the time we finish.
We will have challenge in getting people to work there, because at the height of it, there will be close to 38,000 people working at the same location, this is something that we have to partner with the state government.”
