Executive Director Hajiya Halima Dangote, who spoke at the Dangote Day at the 37th Kano Trade Fair, said the mill would process rice harvested from Sokoto, Zamfara and Kano states.

She noted that the group’s fertilizer project will be inaugurated by end of next year, adding that it will be the largest fertilizer plant in sub-Sahara Africa, with a capacity to produce 2.8 million tonnes per annum.

“Our group has already begun rice production through an extensive outgrower programme in Jigawa State, which will be replicated in Zamfara, Sokoto and other states. This is why we are establishing the mill in Kano.”
