The Kogi Assembly last week ordered the closure of the Obajana Cement plant owned by the Dangote Group until the issue surrounding ownership of the cement plant was resolved.

The state government had claimed that available documents showed that the plant belonged to it, a claim refuted by the Dangote industries which claimed that the Kogi State Government had no stake whatsoever in the plant adding that the Kogi state government was not entitled to any dividend in the company.

Dangote on the other hand said its acquisition of the cement plant followed due process contrary to claims by the state government.

In a release signed by the group managing director of Dangote Cement Plc, Michel Puchercos, the firm said Obajana Cement plant in Kogi state is 100 percent owned by the company.
