Refinery: NANS Senate President Lauds Dangote Group’s Local Content Boost


The Senate President of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Comrade Akinteye Babatunde Afeez has congratulated the Dangote Group as it commences oil production in Nigeria.

Comrade Akinteye said no news can be exciting and interesting to every discerning Nigerians in the first month of the New Year than the resumption of petroleum refining in the country.

He said, “Nothing could be more exciting at the beginning of the new year than to read of the giant strides accomplished by a multi-continental business whose root is tied to Nigeria, the Dangote Group.

“Besides the excitement that comes with the commencement of oil production by the Dangote Refinery, I am more thrilled by the company’s promotion of local content, particularly at a time when Nigeria struggles to import petroleum products from overseas than engage in production activities through local manufacturing.

“The refinery’s operation is a clear indication of the numerous growths the Dangote Group has experienced and its tenacious commitment to growing the local economy of Nigeria.”

Akinteye expressed optimism that as the refinery continues its operation, it will increase and boost gainful employment in the labour market.

“The refinery’s operation will also increase opportunities for many Nigerians, especially youths, with diverse skills to contribute to the company’s ambition while also ensuring positive youth engagement and reduce or eliminate crimes as a means to earn a living.

Akinteye added, “I congratulate the entire Management and Staff for this achievement and continue to wish the organisation well in all of its endeavours.”
