Following the inauguration of the Dangote Refinery by the President, Muhammadu Buhari, in Lagos, the Planter of the Christ Apostolic Church, Grace of Mercy Prayer Mountain, Adamimogo Worldwide, Prophet Sam Alo, has called for the creation of more industries.

He stated that this would help to tackle unemployment and encourage youth entrepreneurship.

The Dangote Refinery is a 650,000 barrels per day oil processing facility designed to process crude oil grades from the three continents of Africa, Asia, and America.

The refinery is also stated to be empowered to support the establishment of 26,716 fillings stations, create 100,000 direct and indirect jobs, and provide a $21bn market of crude oil annually.

Also, in a statement after a church program at the church’s auditorium at Lekki-Epe, Expressway, Lagos, noted that the refinery should be a wake-up call for the private sector to embark on more projects that would help reduce the growing unemployment among the youth.

The cleric stated that job creation, especially for the youth, would curb criminality and other vices.

“If we have 10 of Dangote in Nigeria who will cooperate with the incoming administration and create establishments that will help in reducing unemployment, we will experience peace and calmness,” he said.

Alo urged the private sector to support the government by investing in industries that could create jobs for the people.

He urged the incoming administration to encourage and support entrepreneurs by creating an enabling environment for investment and businesses to thrive.

The cleric urged the President-elect, Bola Tinubu to first unite the country.

He said: “The country, Nigeria, today can be likened to a wall with many cracks which calls for the wisdom of Tinubu to establish unity and peace in the country.

“The second thing is that Tinubu should drum it in the ears of every Nigerian and every section of the country that Nigeria is and remains a secular state which in the circumstance does not call for religious war.

“Tinubu should know that for Nigeria to progress and be in the comity of nations, it should remain an entity with absolute peace, devoid of religious war.”
