Dangote takes road construction to another level, completes 43-km long, Nigeria’s longest concrete-made road in Kogi State. 

Nigerian multinational industrial conglomerate, Dangote Group, has completed Nigeria’s longest concrete-made road located in Kogi State. This is the first of its kind, top engineers say.

Olatunbosun Kalejaiye, the Project Director, said he was excited that the Corporate Social Responsibility Project is being delivered for use by Nigerians, adding that while the rigid pavement has been completed, the company was dressing the shoulders.





Site Engineer Samuel Obosi assured that the dual carriage way will be durable. It would also be less susceptible to potholes and repairs like asphalt road. He added that it would crash the rate of road accident in the country.

Motorists said it is now one of the busiest roads linking the two regions in the country.

“Thank God it is a concrete road. It can withstand any heavy duty vehicle,” Lamidi Sikiru, a driver expressed optimism.

John Moses, a member of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, said his taxi business is booming in comparison to when the road was very deplorable with potholes and barely used by motorists.

A community leader of Apa Bunu Kingdom and spokesperson for the community, Sam Omosayil, commended the Dangote Group. He said that the road has attracted a lot of businesses along the road.
