According to the Deputy General Manager of Production at the Ibese Plant, Sunday Adondua, Dangote Cement is currently operating in fourteen African countries. He added that as Dangote consolidated their hold in Africa markets, they intend to go beyond the borders, specifically targeting the Middle East and Latin America.
