Dangote Sugar set to create 100,000 Jobs in Nasarawa state
Dangote Sugar sets to build the Africa’s largest sugar plantation capable of producing more than one and half million metric tons of sugar annually and creating 100,000 jobs state.
The N217bn sugar complex which is sited in Tunga, Nasarawa state will start on a 60,000 hectares plantation with an initial capacity of 400,000 tons of white sugar yearly, about a third of the country’s consumption and employ 100,000 persons.
Dangote who is also President of Dangote Industries spoke Thursday in Abuja where he signed an agreement with the governor of Nasarawa state whom he thanked profusely for expediting the process.
Dangote is seeking to disrupt the section into which he forayed in February 1981 when he imported 5,000 tons of sugar into the country. He has since gone on to expand his interest including the N38bn Savannah Sugar factory as well as a sugar refinery in the Apapa area of Lagos.
