How Ogun Lost $16 Billion Dangote Refinery To Lagos – Governor Abiodun

Must read

Dapo Abiodun, the governor of Ogun State, has said the breakdown of discussion between Dangote and the immediate past administration in the state led to the loss of a $16 billion Dangote refinery to Lagos State.

He, however, said his administration is working towards ensuring that the state takes advantage of its oil rich deposit and becomes an oil producing state.

The governor gave the position in the lecture he delivered at the second and third convocation ceremony of the Mountain Top University, with the topic, ‘Quest for Excellence: The Nexus of Faith, Knowledge, and Resilience.’

Abiodun expressed disappointment that Ogun lost $16 billion Dangote refinery to Lagos after a break-in discussion between the Ibikunle Amosun-led administration and Dangote.

While also noting that he had the privilege to work as the chairman of the Olokola Free Trade Zone that was meant to have the refinery sited in the state, Abiodun added that the project was not just conceived with the aim of refining petroleum products only but to take advantage of the mining lease that was awarded around the corridor.
