Sharing is caring!

Sustained efforts of Dangote Industries Limited at providing basic infrastructure through various intervention projects have received the commendation of the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI).

President of LCCI, Dr. Micheal Olawale-Cole in his remarks yesterday at Dangote Group’s Special Day at the ongoing Lagos International Trade Fair said the foremost indigenous conglomerate has contributed significantly in providing solutions to the problems Governments have not been able to solve in areas of food sufficiency, road construction, housing, and energy.

He noted that Dangote Group has been at the forefront of job creation even as its products and services have touched the lives of millions of people across the African continent and beyond.  

He enjoined other corporate bodies to toe the line of Dangote in assisting the Government, through the provision of infrastructure, even if it has to be through a tax credit scheme, introduced by the Federal Government.

Welcoming participants to the special day, Group Chief Commercial Officer, Dangote Group, Rabiu Umar, disclosed that the Group is passionate about deepening the Nigerian economy through industrialisation, job creation, provision and rehabilitation of essential infrastructure, and the welfare of the citizens. 

According to him, it is the desire to promote industrialisation that informs our decision to become strategic partners with all the major Chambers of Commerce across the nation.

Umar stated that the theme of the fair “Connecting Businesses, Creating Value” resonates with Dangote Group, as all investment decisions are focused on creating value for all stakeholders across the subsidiaries. 

Dangote Sugar Refinery also unveiled its new retail sugar packs during the event.

Head of Sales & Marketing, Dangote Sugar Refinery, Rilwan Olawale Yusuf speaking during the unveiling said the new packs which come in three variants, 1 kg, 500 g and 250 g will improve on-shelf brand visibility and enhance consumer preference for ‘our brand.’ 

According to him, the new product package will establish a clear differentiation and enhance the attractiveness of the pack.
