The Kogi State Government and management of Dangote Cement have reached an agreement for the re-opening of Obajana Cement Plant in the state.
The National Security Council has also ordered the re-opening of the cement company.

The directive is to give room for peace in the state.

The state government and Dangote Group have been at loggerheads over the ownership structure of the cement factory.

The Council, chaired by President Muhammadu Buhari, gave the order at the end of its meeting in Abuja on Friday.

Minister of Police Affairs, Alhaji Maigari Dingyadi, who addressed the correspondents after the meeting, said an agreement had been reached to ensure the re-opening of the cement company in Obajana.

He said: “An agreement has been reached between the Kogi State government and the Dangote Cement in Kogi on the need to re-open the factory and ensure that there is peace in the state.

“Government is committed to the provision of employment to its citizens rather than closing factories that will make people unemployed.

“We do hope that the parties involved will respect this agreement and come to terms with the memorandum of understanding signed by the parties involved,” he added.

Dingyadi said the agreement was reached under the supervision of the Chief of Staff to the President, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari.
