Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has commended Alhaji Dangote for his outstanding empowerment initiatives through employment as Dangote Cement opened a new mega warehouse in Imo State, yesterday.
Okorocha, who said before now there was no presence of Dangote in the State, described the president of Dangote group of industries as a bridge builder and a very humble man, who believes in Nigeria and in humanity without minding religious differences or where one comes from.
He said Dangote deserves every honour in this country. “The man Dangote is humble about his wealth. He does not show undue strength with his wealth. Dangote Cement has sold more cement in Imo State than it has done in any other part of the country because of the infrastructural revolution going on in the state. Imo State today is a new state. The wealth of Nigeria is in Imo untapped because of the presence of high quality gas in the State. The gas-plant in the state is yet to function. I appeal that Alhaji Dangote would partner with the state in this regard.”
Dangote and his entourage who had earlier paid a courtesy call on the governor at the Government House Owerri, stressed that the State is one of the major markets of Dangote Cement and other products of Dangote group, stating that he was in the state for the opening of a mega warehouse for Dangote Cement.
