The Minister of State for Peteroleum resources has recently begged Alhaji Aliko Dangote to complete his refinery by the end of 2019. The minister stated that this would enable the present administration to deliver on its promises of putting an end to the importation of petrol within this time frame.
Whilst reiterating the government's heavy reliance on the completion of this project, the Minister during his visit to Dangote refinery at Lekki Free Trade Zone in Lagos also expressed the government's commitment towards playing its part responsibly to ensure that the project is completed smoothly.
