Buhari arrives commissioning of Dangote Refinery
President Muhammadu Buhari (retired) has arrived at the Dangote refinery for its official inauguration. Situated in the Dangote Industries Free Zone in Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos, the refinery is designed to process crude oil from Africa, Asia, and America. It is capable of producing a surplus of approximately 38 million liters of petrol, diesel, kerosene, and aviation fuel for Nigeria on a daily basis.
With a refining capacity of 650,000 barrels of crude oil per day, the Dangote refinery converts crude oil into various petroleum products such as gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, and kerosene.
President Buhari was warmly received by Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Governor of Lagos State, and Aliko Dangote, the President of Dangote Group.
The commissioning of the Dangote Refinery is expected to be attended by at least five African presidents, including President Buhari. Among the anticipated attendees are Gnassingbé Eyadéma, the President of Togo; Nana Akufo-Addo, the President of Ghana; Macky Sall, the President of Senegal; Mohamed Bazoum, the President of Niger Republic; and Mahamat Déby, the President of Chad.
