Gateway Trade Fair: Dangote to boost agric through strategic investments


The Pan-African Conglomerate, Dangote Industries Limited has restrated its commitment towards partnering various tiers of Governments in the country, in building sustainable and inclusive economy for the benefit all Nigerians.

This is just as the company announced its partnership with the Ogun State Chamber of Commerce and Industry (OGUNCCIMA) for the 10th Gateway International Trade Fair 2021, themed “Remodeling Agriculture, Commerce and Trade beyond Nigerian Borders with Modern Technology” and holding in Abeokuta between April 2 and 12, 2021.

Group Chief Branding and Communication, Mr. Anthny Chiejina in a statement announcing the Company’s participation at this year’s Gateway Trade fair said the the group has concluded plans to scale up investments in the agricultural sector, in response to the on-going public policy focus of federal government.

He hinted that as part of the Company’s support to the development of agriculture sector, the 3 million ton per annum Fertilizer Plant it is currently constructing at Ibeju Lekki, Lagos will be commissioned soon to boos agricultural activities in the country.

Chiejina explained that all the subsidiaries of the company would be at the trade fair and urged members of the public to take advantage of this year’s fair to strike partnership with the Group for business opportunities.

According to him “the Group has also kick-started the development of six Large Scale Rice Milling Plants in six states namely Kano, Jigawa, Zamfara, Niger, Kebbi, and Sokoto, with a combined total milling capacity of 1.5 million per annum.

He said Dangote`s growing investment in the agricultural sector, is to complement the existing and continuing investments being made in other sectors, such as: Cement, Salt and other consumer products.

“We are also significantly involved in the Oil and Gas sector, with an on-going construction of one of the World`s Largest Petroleum Refinery. This will not only put an end to the embarrassing importation of products into our crude oil rich country but will also significantly boost our intra-African trade position.”
