National Security Council Orders Immediate Reopening Of Obajana Dangote Cement Factory, Kogi State

The National Security Council (NSC) chaired by President Muhammadu Buhari has directed that Dangote Cement factory in Obajana, Kogi State, be reopened immediately.

Minister of Police Affairs, Mohammed Dingyadi, joined by his Interior counterpart, Rauf Aregbesola and the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Lucky Irabor, announced the new directive to journalists after the NSC meeting held at the Council Chambers of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Aregbesola said an agreement had been reached between Kogi State Government and Dangote Group on the need to reopen the cement factory, urging both parties to respect the agreement.

The minister added that the council ordered immediate reopening of the factory and advised that all issues in contention be resolved legally as government was committed to providing employment.

On the ultimatum given by Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State on Thursday that people of the state would take their decision on sophisticated weapons procurement if the Federal Government failed in the next one month to respond to its already written application to the appropriate quarters, he restated that no state had been authorized to acquire automatic rifles and urged that due process be followed.

The council also directed the Office of the National Security Adviser (NSA) in conjuction with the Office of the Secretary to Government of the Federation (OSGF) to set up a high-powered investigation committee into the crude oil theft in the Niger Delta with a view to unraveling those behind it.
