The President of Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote, has said Dangote Industries Limited has been championing the cause of local content and contributing significantly to the economic growth of Nigeria and the African continent as a whole.

Dangote who was represented at the ongoing Kaduna International Trade Fair by his Special Adviser, Fatima Wali-Abdulrahman, noted that local content would harness the potential within a country’s borders for the benefit of its people.

He said, “By investing in local industries, talent, and resources, DIL does not only create jobs but also empower communities and foster sustainable economic growth.

“The aim was to commit to deepening local content values across its various business sectors in line with the theme of the 45th series of the Kaduna Trade Fair, ‘Sustainable Economic Recovery through Deepening of Local Content Value Chain.’

“In addition to these domestic contributions, the Dangote Group has expanded its footprint across the African continent, promoting regional economic integration and positioning Nigeria as a key player in intra-Africa trade.”

Earlier in his remarks, the President of the Kaduna Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture, Ishaya Idi, stated, “The chamber has noted with great concern that despite the abundance of solid minerals, agricultural commodities, and raw materials, our nation continues to lose billions of dollars annually on account of lack of value addition in its handling, production, and export processes.
