Much more interesting is the geographical size of the refinery, which Dangote puts at eight times the size of Victoria Island, Lagos.
A video by Ovation Media Group shows Dangote telling stakeholders and the media how big his refinery really is.
“You won't appreciate the size of the place, maybe because you have not gone round, some of you,” he said.
“But this place is actually eight times Victoria Island, that is to give you the concept. The entire Victory Island, you get eight times of it here, so that is how big it is.”
