Zainab Sanni

Africa’s largest cement producer, Dangote Cement, has begun the exportation of 27,800 metric tonnes of clinker to a neighbouring African country.

With the historic maiden voyage at the weekend from its Export Terminal at Apapa Port in Lagos, Dangote has taken Nigeria from one of the world’s largest bulk importers of cement, to become self-sufficient and now an exporter of cement clinker to other countries.

The exportation of clinker from the Dangote Cement Export Terminal will also place Nigeria as one of the leading clinker exporters in the world.

The company is planning to increase the quantity of clinker export to other African countries in the next few weeks, it has been learnt.

Speaking during the departure of the ship conveying the clinker, the Group Executive Director of Dangote Group, Alhaji Sada Ladan-Baki said the increased exportation of clinker and cement to other African countries would not only place Dangote Cement among top clinker exporters in the world but would also boost Nigeria’s foreign exchange earnings and reduce unemployment in the country.
