Dangote Group has expressed its readiness to partner with the Federal Government and the Kano State government in exploring ways to help Nigeria out of its current economic downturn.
A statement issued by the Chief Corporate Communication Officer of Dangote Group, Mr Anthony Chiejina, noted that the company will look into key sectors of the economy and see how it would help cushion effect of the recession.
Among the sectors highligted to explore by Dangote Group are agriculture, mining and infrastructure through partnership with the levels of government.
As part of this, the Group has re-opened the Dangote flour mill in Kano.
It also said the Tomato factory processing project would have been fully operational in Kadawa area of Kano State if not for the hitches caused by Tomato disease and some technicalities.
Mr Chiejina quoted the Executive Director, Commercial, DFM, Hajiya Halima Dangote in the statement to have said that the challenges of the recession have rather presented opportunities to explore areas of development and bring back lost glory of Nigeria’s economy.
She said this at the Dangote Special Day ceremony at the Kano International Trade Fair on recently, where she represented President/Chief Executive of the group, Mr Aliko Dangote.
