According to Reports reaching Oyogist.com, the Managing Directors of Dangote Refinery and Petrochemicals has disclosed that it’s Latest 650,000 barrels per day project will create jobs for not less than 250,000 Nigerians when completed next year.

This was disclosed by the Group Executive Director, Strategy and Capital Projects, of Dangote Industries Limited, Mr. Devakumar Edwin.

Edwin said the refinery had potential to turn around Nigeria’s economy with the employment of thousands of Nigerians for direct and indirect jobs.

He further stressed on the need to make the country self-reliant in fuel consumption and attract the much needed foreign exchange through export of the products the company produces.

He said: “The laboratory will enable us analyse and identify a particular soil deficiency. Applying the right fertiliser to soil will enable it yield maximum result. The goal of our soil testing is to provide an accurate assessment of the soil’s fertility to make fertiliser recommendations.

“A proper soil test will help ensure the application of enough fertiliser to meet the requirements of the crop while taking advantage of the nutrients already present in the soil.”

Edwin maintained that Dangote Fertiliser would make Nigeria become selfsufficient in fertiliser production and have the capacity to export the products to other African countries.

“Right now, farmers are forced to utilise whatever fertiliser that is available as they have no choice, but we need to know that the fertiliser that will work in one state may not be suitable in another state, as they may not have the same soil type and composition.The same fertilizer you use for sorghum may not be the fertiliser you will use for sugar cane,” he added.
