Dangote Repatriates $687,977m From Pan-African Operations

Dangote Industries Limited (DIL) has revealed that its pan African operations have fetched Nigeria $687,977 million.

The company stated it has so far repatriated over $576.009 million through various banks in Nigeria, in addition to a $111.968 million cash swap arrangement between Dangote Cement Plc and Ethiopian Airlines; thus, saving the same amount that would have been paid by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

The company revealed this in a statement made available to journalists.

Dangote re-affirmed its determination and belief in Nigeria, noting that the present government of President Bola Tinubu, has shown the will and resolve to get the economy moving again.

“We believe in Nigeria, and we believe in Africa. We are genuine and authentic about our investments, and we call on all relevant agencies to investigate our FX transactions in the past ten years and make public any infraction noticed or discovered,” he said

Insisting that all forex purchased in respect of its African Project Expansion were genuine and fully utilised for what they were meant for, Dangote revealed that, the projects for which the forex was utilised are visible for everyone to see.

To him, “It is on record that some of these projects were commissioned by Nigerian top-ranking government officials and in attendance were chief executives of various banks, Captains of Industries, and the Presidents of the host countries supported by their Senior Government Officials.

“The commissioning events of these projects were well documented and covered by both local and international media. There are also print and electronic copies of the commissioning ceremonies as further testimony to the judicious utilisation of the funds.”
