The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has commended Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, on the opening of the Dangote Refinery at Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos, on Monday.
During his speech at the refinery’s inauguration, the governor stated that Dangote had nothing when he got into the state from Kano 45 years ago.
He said, “A young Nigerian 45 years ago who came to Lagos all the way from another mega city in our country, Kano. Who saw the prosperity, the diversity in our country, Who came with nothing 45 years ago but has now built the biggest empire in the world for Africa.”
The Dangote Refinery complex is located in the Lekki Free Zone area of Lagos. The refinery is the biggest in Africa and also the biggest single-train refinery in the world.
