All eyes on Dangote Refinery

For now, Dangote's eyes are fixed on the 650,000 barrels per day Dangote Refinery, poised to be the largest in Africa and Europe.

It has already begun selling diesel and aviation fuel, though its petrol has not yet been released to the market.

Dangote mentioned that the refinery's capacity exceeded Nigeria's needs and that it would be able to supply fuel to West, Central, and Southern Africa.

When asked if the $19 billion crude oil refinery in Lagos had begun generating profit, Dangote confidently stated that revenue would start flowing soon.

He emphasized that while the primary goal of running a business is to make money, he finds immense satisfaction in knowing that his efforts contribute to Africa's advancement.

In response to a question about the sufficiency of crude oil supply from domestic producers, Dangote remarked that while the Nigerian National Oil Company Limited (NNPC) is making commendable efforts, the International Oil Companies (IOCs) are accustomed to exporting their crude and are hesitant to adapt immediately.
