The Dangote Coal Mines Limited has received accolades from House of Representatives Committees as they commend the company for its philanthropic and social investment strides to their host communities in Kogi state.
The chairman of, the House of Representatives Committee on Federal Road Safety Commission, Hon Akinfolarin Mayowa Samuel, made the commendation during a fact-finding visit by the House of Representatives committees on the Federal Road Safety Commission and its counterpart- the Committee on Solid Minerals Development to the Dangote Coal Mines Limited at Ankpa on Thursday in Kogi state, adding that his committee was satisfied with the performance and the relationship between the Dangote Coal Mines and its host communities.
The lawmaker said that they were on a fact-finding mission to authenticate the outcome of an Interactive Session held earlier at the National Assembly in October.
Recall, the committee on Road Safety had at the Interactive Session given the company a clean bill of health, stressing that the company’s various innovations and collaboration with the Federal Road Safety Corps had helped to bring down the rate of auto crashes in the country.
Hon Samuel said: “We are satisfied with the performance of the Dangote Coal Mines Limited in terms of its relationship with communities, and its efforts in ensuring road safety.”
According to the law maker, it has become imperative for the committees to visit the host communities to get first-hand information on the operations of the company following the motion moved by Hon Abdullahi Ibrahim Halims, who represents the Ankpa/Omala/Olamaboro constituency in the House of Representatives.
