Nigeria’s energy tycoon, Femi Otedola, has described the Oil Refinery and Fertilizer plant owned by Aliko Dangote as the ‘8th wonder of the world’.
Otedola who was awed by the building made this known on his twitter handle.
The oil refinery, which is still under construction, is currently valued at $12 billion.
It would be single largest in the world upon completion, with the capacity to meet Nigeria’s fuel consumption.
The fertilizer plant is estimated to have a capacity of 2.8 million tonnes of urea annually.
Otedola, who described the projects as “8th wonder in the world”, said the fertiliser plant is complete and ready for inauguration while the refinery is at 75 percent completion.
Visited the @AlikoDangote 8th wonder in the world – second largest fertilizer plant (ready for commissioning) and the biggest oil refinery (75% completed, with the petrochemical unit 60% completed). I’m still in AWE having not been in Lagos for 5 months. ? … F.Ote? pic.twitter.com/8bXDy1qXr7
