Dangote Group has reaffirmed the company’s commitment toward strengthening the growth of the country’s economy through increased investment in manufacturing and supply chain.
The Group’s Executive Director, Mr. Mansur Ahmed said the company was at the forefront of driving the country’s economy through its expansion drive beyond the country.
Ahmed, an engineer spoke at a forum, organised by the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry, LCCI, at the ongoing Lagos International Trade Fair.
He said the company’s strategic expansion to more than 10 African countries was geared toward reducing the pressure on the Naira and repatriation of foreign earnings into the country.
Ahmed said the group was committed to increasing the value of Nigerian economy through chain of its activities in the oil and gas, manufacturing, construction and logistics business.
He, however, emphasised that the company’s drive toward diversification and innovation had grown it into one of the largest conglomerates in the country.
Dr Knut Ulvmoen, an Executive Director, Dangote Group, said that the company was leveraging on effective transportation system in getting its goods to the market.
“We have 8,000 trucks in Nigeria. There is no use having a factory without being able to take the goods to the markets,” he said.
Alhaji Remi Bello, the President of LCCI, also said that Dangote Groups’ success story could be attributed to necessary support and encouragement.
