Shettima said this at the unveiling of the Dangote Refinery at Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos, on Monday.

During his speech at the refinery’s inauguration, the politician urged other businessmen and entrepreneurs in the country to follow suit.

He said, “I acknowledge and commend the government and people of Lagos State for creating an enabling environment for this project to come to reality.

“This project commenced in 2017 when President Muhammadu Buhari was at the helm of affairs of this great nation and was completed under his stewardship.

“I want to assure the Aliko Dangote Group that the incoming administration will do whatever is possible to keep and sustain the tempo of this project.

“Africa is not all about the crisis in Sudan, deprivation and destitute or insecurity. I hope the CNN, BBC, and Sky News of this world will be around to give maximum coverage to this function.”
