Femi Otedola, the Nigerian billionaire and business mogul, declared that history had been made after his visit to the Dangote Refinery. This comes following reports on January 12, 2023, that the refinery initiated the production of diesel and aviation fuel.
The Dangote Refinery boasts a 650,000 barrel-per-day oil processing capacity and was officially inaugurated by former President Muhammadu Buhari. The commencement of operations followed the receipt of six shipments of one million barrels of crude cargo.
In a post on his X page, Otedola extended congratulations to Aliko Dangote, the Chairman of Dangote Group, for the successful establishment of the refinery. He expressed admiration for the Dangote Oil Refinery, referring to it as the “8th wonder of the world” that had just started production.
Otedola commended Dangote for this significant achievement, highlighting the refinery’s Guinness Book of Records recognition as the world’s largest single-train petroleum refinery. He concluded by acknowledging the historic nature of the accomplishment.
