Update on Obajana Cement Plant
Dangote Cement Plc (DANGCEM-NL), Africa’s largest cement producer, wishes to notify stakeholders that our 16.25Mt Obajana Cement plant re-opened on Friday, 7 October, 2022, with suboptimal operations.
It became fully operational from Friday, 14 October, 2022, when the Federal Government ordered the full re-opening of the plant. Production at the Obajana Cement plant is now running at optimal levels.
The dispute between the two parties, Dangote Industries Limited and Kogi State Government is being resolved.
We extend our appreciation to all our shareholders and stakeholders who have remained patient with us throughout this incident. We remain committed to promoting inclusive economic growth while supporting the development of communities in which we operate.
