Dangote Group Expanding Operations Despite Recession

The Dangote Group of Companies has denied reports that the disengagement of 48 workers from the company was due to economic recession in the country, Mr Tony Chiejina, its Head of Corporate Affairs, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Monday that the 36 expatriates workers formed the bulk of those disengaged.

He said that the expatriates were disengaged because of job overlap, while the 12 Nigerians that were affected were in the procurement department whose services were now redundant due to growth in the company. Chiejina said that Dangote group was rather expanding its operations in spite of the recession and this expansion would fire more employments in the company.

He said that the company was expanding into oil and gas, rice and diary projects, fertiliser and petrochemicals, among others. He said that the current recession was a challenge to the company to impact more favourably on the Nigerian economy.
