“Dangote fertiliser project is planned to possess unique features like having the largest granulated Urea fertiliser complex under development in the global fertiliser industry, with an investment of $2.0 billion and a capacity of 3 million tonnes per annum, covering some 500 hectares of land”, he added.

Edwin said Dangote Fertiliser will guarantee substantial saving of foreign exchange in Africa and create surplus Urea for farmers to enhance production of food grains and vegetables.
