Browsing: Dangote Refinery

Abracadabra is the best word to describe what is going on in Port Harcourt Refinery. The Refinery is situated at Alesa Eleme, which is 19km from Port Harcourt city. I have visited the refinery thrice. Twice I accompanied my two bosses, Alhaji Gidado Idris and Chief Ufot Ekaette, both late Secretaries to the Government of the Federation. My last visit to the refinery was three years ago with a friend, who once worked in the refinery.

Leaders of trade unions of Nigeria Labour Congress such as Textile, Chemical, Electricity, Automobile, Engineering as well as Petroleum and Gas, who are affiliates of international  labour platform called IndustriALL Global Union, said the size of the refinery project spoke volume of the entrepreneurial spirit of Aliko Dangote.

Impressed by the vastness of the Dangote Refinery currently under construction in Lagos, Nigeria, the High Commissioner of the United Republic of Tanzania to Nigeria, Muhidini Ally Mboweto, has sought the assistance of the Africa’s foremost entrepreneur, Aliko Dangote, in the development of his country’s energy sector, specifically petroleum.
