The Management of Indorama Eleme Fertiliser & Chemicals (IEFCL) Ltd has refuted allegation by the National Security Adviser (NSA), Maj-Gen. Babagana Monguno (rtd), that the company and Notore Petrochemical, are sabotaging the national economy and security through their export of fertilizers, which also gets to dissident groups at the detriment of farmers in Nigeria.

This was contained in the statement signed on Sunday by the Head of Corporate Communications, Mr. Jossy Nkwocha, saying that all its domestic supplies to customers so far are in accordance with the approval of the Office of the National Security Adviser (NSA) and the Farm Input and Supply Services (FISS) department in the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

Nkwocha stated: “IEPL and its sister companies in Nigeria are not, and have not, and would never be directly or indirectly involved in any activities to undermine or sabotage the economy or security of the nation”.

He noted that its brand-new world-class fertilizer plant built at a cost of $1.5 billion – one of Nigeria’s largest Foreign Direct Investment in the
downstream sector – started pre-commissioning production only recently at only 75 per cent capacity, and in the past one month has been giving priority to the domestic market.

He said “the plant is still awaiting official inauguration”.
