The Nigerian Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (NIEEE) has praised the President of Dangote Petroleum Refinery and Petrochemicals (DPRP), Alhaji Aliko Dangote for undertaking a commendable project that will significantly contribute to the country’s overall economic growth, industrialisation and sustainable development.

Chairman of the Ibeju-Lekki chapter of NIEEE, Dr. Oluwasegun Sholiyi expressed his admiration during a technical and facilities tour of the refinery in Lagos, describing it as a “monumental achievement” and a “source of pride for Nigerians and Africans”.

Sholiyi acknowledged that the refinery is the first of its kind in this region and emphasised that the 650,000 barrels per day-Dangote Petroleum Refinery and Petrochemicals is a testament to a brighter future for Nigeria, the giant of Africa. He commended the high level of technology and engineering at the petrochemical company, stating that Dangote’s successful completion of this project has solidified Nigeria’s place in global oil refinery and technology history.

As the director of the National Space Research and Development Agency’s (NASRDA) Centre for Space Transport and Propulsion in Lagos State, Sholiyi explained that the refinery will not only create employment opportunities for Nigerian youths but also reduce the need for petroleum product imports, thereby saving foreign exchange and improving the country’s balance of trade.
