Several firsts made 2020 a productive year such as our maiden clinker shipment, maiden bond issuance and successful buyback programme. We increased our capacity by 3Mt in Nigeria, commissioned our two export terminals and commissioned our gas power plant in Tanzania. All this was achieved whilst we focussed on protecting our people, customers, and communities from the impact of the pandemic.

"Dangote Cement recorded strong top-line growth supported by strong cement demand…. I am delighted to report that Dangote Cement experienced its strongest year in terms of EBITDA and strongest year in terms of volumes."
