My Refinery Will Kick Off Before September – Dangote

Published

Dangote Refinery 1

He said this when Dr. Akinwumi Adesina, President of the African Development Bank (AfDB) led a delegation of the bank to the project site in Lagos.

“The refinery will commence operation by the third quarter of 2022. On the mechanical completion, we are almost finished but we have started hydro testing, almost 70 per cent gone, hopefully before the end of Q3 operation will commence,” Dangote said.

Group Executive Director, Strategy, Portfolio Development & Capital Projects, Dangote Industries Limited, Devakumar Edwin, said the refinery complex, which includes a refinery, petrochemical plant, a fertiliser plant and a subsea pipeline project, is the largest single-train refinery in the world.

Edwin stated that the 650,000 barrels-per-day refinery would stimulate economic development in Nigeria.

According to him, Dangote Petroleum Refinery can meet 100 per cent of the Nigerian requirement of all liquid products (Gasoline, Diesel, Kerosene and Aviation Jet), and also have surplus of each of these products for export.

He stated that this would create a market for $11 billion per annum of Nigerian crude and foreign exchange savings/earnings $9.9 billion.

“We have impacted on job creation with 3,580 Nigerian personnel on site, excluding employment by the various contractors and subcontractors at the site,” he noted.

Commending Dangote for the initiative, the AfDB President said, “One of the things I admire the most about Alhaji Dangote is that, he actually believes in Nigeria, and he invests his money in Nigeria. He believes in Africa and invests in Africa. Nobody could invest the type of billions of dollars that is here, unless the person not only has the vision but also the commitment and passion for his country. We are extremely proud of you and of your commitment to the continent.

“I am completely blown away with what I saw here today. I can’t believe what I saw. This project will reverse the huge sum the nation spends on foreign exchange. When you look at how much we import, it is about $57 billion worth of different products and we export only about $50.4 billion, so we have to balance that with about $7 billion and talking to them here, they showed us that they can have a domestic market of about $11 billion and that is an incredible market and that will save Nigeria about $9 billion, a year from importing petroleum products. So, this is huge for Nigeria and even for Africa as a continent.”

Your God Is Powerless And Useless – Dr Olufunmilayo Reacts To Deborah’s Death

If you need to murder someone to “defend” your god, then your god is powerless and useless.

And if reading this tweet upset you, you are brainless. You are exactly the chosen intended audience for the tweet.

The earlier we speak against this barbarism, the better for all of us.

If you believe your god is all-powerful, why does he need you a mere human mortal to “fight” for him and “defend” him? Think about it.

I write this to everyone who believes in the existence of an all-powerful God.

If our God is “almighty”, pls why do we need to murder for him?

If your god is “all-merciful”, “all-forgiving”, “merciful” and “benevolent”, why do you not leave judgment to him to do?

If he’s the one offended;
If he’s the “Almighty” and “True Judge”;

Why do you see the need to carry out judgment for him- if he’s not powerless and useless?

That young girl murdered is a human being like me like you. Someone’s sister, someone’s daughter and someone’s friend.

All her friends, families and loved ones are in pain right now because she went to school in a place that felt it’s okay to murder people to “defend” their god.

We need to do better
We need to think better.
This is 2022. Not the year 1322.

We are civilised people. Not brutal barbarians. We need to rethink our ways and our behaviour.

Finally:
If you need to kill a human being to defend your god, your god is simply useless and powerless.
