Dangote came to Lagos 45 years ago with nothing — Sanwo-Olu.

Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has said Aliko Dangote contributed to the prosperity of Lagos and also Nigeria by his investments.

Sanwo-Olu said this at the Commissioning of Dangote Refinery and Petrochemicals, in Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos on Monday, May 22.

Sanwo-Olu described Dangote as a detribalised individuals who saw the wealth of the state and who invested in the prosperity of Lagos and Nigeria.

The governor of Lagos state said Dangote came to Lagos with nothing about 45 years ago, but he is now Africa’s richest man.

It is located at Dangote Industries Free Zone, Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos, and it is set up to process crude oil grades from the continent of Africa, Asia and America, with a delivery of a surplus of close to 38 million litres of petrol, diesel, kerosene and aviation fuel for Nigeria daily. 

“Those like me, who have made Lagos our home will testify that since the beginning of the current democratic dispensation, the government of Lagos State has been exceptionally remarkable in its commitment and support for the private sector.
