It will be at a cost of $2 billion.

    Thank you Dangote for supporting Oshiomhole in improving the lot of Edo people and Nigerians in general. I solicit that you also cite a project in Anambra State in recognition of the transparency and commitment of Peter Obi to improving the lot of Anambrarians. Thank you very much indeed.

    May God continue to enlarge the coast of Dangote. He is a true patriot who has not only decided to industrialize Nigeria, in particular, but the entire Africa. While those who are looting our treasury are industrializing already industrialized nations, Dangote is industrializing his fatherland. God bless you, Alh Dangote.

  4. Dangote and our leaders are criminals,they are making things dificult for nigerians, i travel to china to buy wears, and i decide check The price of other items and i come across a place where are selling cement, you will be suprise the price is a equivilent to five hundred and fifty naria only per 50kg. I don’t know why this country is so blind.

  5. The name Dangote signify Africa investment. He remains the only man who believes in investing in Africa and Nigeria in particular. An excellent manager of human and material resouces. Tell me another man? We lost the opportunity of letting him invest in Port Harcourt refinery. Now we regret and suffer in silence because we failed to allow a catalyst like him to jump start local refining.

  6. Now i know that president GEJ did not make a mistake in awarding you GCON. If all rich men and women in Nigeria will emulate or replicate what Dangote is doing in Nigeria i sincerely believe that unemployment would be drastically reduced in Nigeria. Thank you Dangote for this gesture and thank you comrade governor for providing an enabling environment for such giant industry to be sited in Edo state.


    Oh sorry my comrade, i jst took u as Gen.Ogbemudia, never knew it was my comrade Gov. I like u so much, jst keep on the good work u re doing 4 EDORITES. God will guilde u and give u more wisdom to lead, i wish u re from S/E.luves ur leadership style.

  8. Time will come when they would burn down the industry! Keep on investing your wealth at the South. Bear in mind that never there would be a time when your enemy will change a color! Dangote dump head!

  9. Alhaji Dangote is a genius. The only Hausa man that sees himself as a Nigerian and operates without baundary just like the Ibos.God will continue to bless you for proving yourself a nigerian and indirectly telling your co-notherners that the Ibos are not stupid by investing in the north.The prayer of those whom you have given employment through your numerous investments in Nigeria will assist you and your family for a long time. Shame to the greedy idiots who have plundered Nigerias resourses and taken it abroad, Shame to the idiots who have decided to use the money they stole to sponsor terrorism instead of investing it to creat Jobs, shame to peoplr like @ yakubu who is retarded in all faces of life because of his tribalistic beleive. This are the people who proclaim one Nigeria by mouth but is afraid to invest in other parts of the country,
