The management of Dangote Group has described as misleading reports that the company was granted sole approval to export cement through the land borders.
In a statement Tuesday, the company said it was not the only company enjoying such privilege to move goods through the land borders.
The online news portal, PREMIUM TIMES had reported how facts emerged on Monday that despite the border closure policy put in place, the Nigerian government had allowed Dangote Cement to resume cement export across its land borders.
According to Bloomberg, President Muhammadu Buhari‘s administration gave its authorization for Africa’s biggest producer to export cement to Niger and Togo in the third quarter for the first time in ten months.
