He added that Nigeria will soon become an exporter of nitrogen, phosphate and potash fertilizers due to the huge investments in industry over the past three years.
He also stated that: “I know that Aliko Dangote will start production in the next two to three years, and others will also appear. Nigeria is currently a net exporter of urea-based fertilizers. ”
“When the Dangote plant, which comes on board, and INDORAMA increase to the second line, we will produce about seven million tons of fertilizers. About 70 percent of fertilizers will be exported, and the remaining 30 percent will be used domestically, ”he said.
