Dangote urges NASS to consider refinery as national asset

The Owner of Dangote Refinery, Aliko Dangote, has urged the National Assembly to consider the refinery as a national asset.

He stated that the refinery has multiplier effects on the nation and should be protected and backed with laws that would ensure no interruption in its activities.

He spoke when the President of the Senate, Senator Godswill Akpabio, visited the refinery.

Dangote said: “I urged the National Assembly (NASS) to consider this refinery as a national asset given the envisaged long multiplier effect for the country. Indigenous investment  of such ought to be protected and backed by laws to prevent disruptions in its activities.”

Akpabio pledged that the NASS will give tax waivers to the refinery.

He said: “We will do as human beings go back and do our best to protect this facility. We will do. If incentives including tax waivers, are given to people who acquire oil wells, why should we not give tax waivers to this refinery.”
