Speaking at the 2nd Zero Hunger Committee in Abuja, the Group Vice President of Dangote Industries Limited, Alhaji Sani Dangote said the company(Dangote) may close down its tomato paste production factory following unfriendly government policies that encourage importation.

Alhaji Dangote charged the government to put in place a clear cut policy on tomato importation and local production.
He said, “We are not looking for forex. We are only saying that government should put up a policy where we are producing tomato concentrate to those industries that are into packaging; we are not into retail packaging.

“If we are talking about importers and we are talking about local producers; there is no way we can have a common ground because they are looking at 100 per cent import and we are looking at 100 per cent local production.

“Some companies have opened industries in Ghana and other free zones under the disguise of ECOWAS and are importing.”
