The Togolese President is visiting the Lagos Lekki Free Trade Zone where the Dangote Group is embarking on multi-billion dollars investments.

The tour is expected to explore and facilitate prospective investors from the francophone nation (Togo).

Already, apart from the Dangote Group which is currently building a refinery, a fertilizer plant and a subsea gas station, Indian investors are already operating in the Free Trade Zone.
