In a statement issued to newsmen on Sunday, Ogunbekun appealed to well-meaning Nigerians to pray for the success of Dangote Refinery and Petrochemicals, saying that the refinery would not only further open up Lagos and the nation, but also ensure job creation for thousands of youths.

Reacting to a report in an online medium that Dangote told newsmen in Abuja that he “shall continue to support his good and reliable friend, Mr. Godwin Obaseki known to have handled stocks and investment portfolios for Dangote Group”, Chiejina said the report was an outright falsehood and a figment of the imagination of the writers.
