Dangote Refinery Will Reduce Unemployment- Commissioner
Lagos State Commissioner for Commerce, Industry, and Cooperatives, Lola Akande says the ongoing construction of Dangote Refinery, located within the Lekki Free Trade Zone (LFTZ), is a laudable project that would reduce unemployment within the Lekki-Epe corridor and the entire state when completed.
Akande disclosed this during a working visit to LFTZ recently, affirming that the state government will provide the necessary support for successful completion of the project and all other ongoing construction works within the zone.
Noting that the project would positively impact the economy and increase the revenue base of the State Government, the Commissioner further advised the management of the refinery to ensure the sustenance of an eco-friendly policy by avoiding any form of pollution that can impact negatively on the neighbourhood.
She urged Dangote Group to provide necessary relief to the people in the environment in view of the hardship and inconvenience its operations might have caused the residents, especially regarding the road networks within the area.
