The Committee of Baales and some residents of Ibeju Lekki, Lagos, have applauded the management of Dangote Refinery over its corporate social responsibility initiatives.

They expressed appreciation to the company for providing vital infrastructure for their communities, repairing all the entrance roads of the 15 host communities.

In a chat with newsmen recently, the Baale of Magbon-Segun, Chief Mufutau Dauda said, Dangote refinery had demonstrated a high level of social responsibility, as it had executed so many tangible projects across all the host communities, even up to Lekki.

He said, “We are all praying for Aliko Dangote. I even raised a special prayer for him in our community mosque… He has done so well for all our communities. No doubt, he can do more, but for now, he is honestly trying.

“Our children are being trained inside the refinery site and they already passed the Level 1 and Level 2 examinations for City & Guilds certification in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering and they will be writing the examination for Level 3 certification soon.”

Also, the Baale of Okeyanta, Chief Shakiru Bello, said the scholarship scheme, that commenced in 2019 by Dangote had helped parents in the communities.

He said, “When they started the scholarship scheme for secondary and tertiary institution students, we thought they wouldn’t be able to sustain it, but they have continued to increase the numbers of beneficiaries every year and this is highly commendable.”
