DANGOTE


Dangote Group has pledged to support President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government and Kano State in exploring key sectors of the economy to cushion the effect of the recession among Nigerians.




The Group said in a statement on Monday in Abuja, that it would explore opportunities opening up in agriculture, mining and infrastructure, through partnership with the levels of government.

The Executive Director of the Group, Hajiya Halima Dangote, made the pledge at Dangote Special Day ceremony at the Kano International Trade Fair in Kano.

He said it was such determination that informed re-opening of Dangote Flour Mill in Kano as well as the Tomato factory processing project in Kadawa area of the state.

Dangote said the project would have been fully operational but for the hitches caused by Tomato disease in the country and some technicalities.

He reiterated efforts by the group to ensure sustainability in rice production through extensive out-grower programme in Jigawa.

“It is our intention to establish a large scale rice mill of 250,000 tonnes per annum capacity in Kano, to process production in three states,’’, Dangote said.
