"In many towns and cities around the World, host communities of manufacturing industries of Dangote cement stature always breath sigh of relief as corporate Organizations brings in lots of goodies and development to this communities. This goodies in the name of corporate social responsibility comes in terms of provisions of social and critical infrastructures for the benefit of host communities who are also the first casualties of environmental pollutions of such establishments."

"To the people of the Ilaro-Yewa, Dangote cement factory and the Nigerian  custom Service, have become a thorn in the flesh of the host communities no thanks to their inhumane and careless attitudes to the environment where billions of naira are carted away on daily basis. Our people die on daily basis but we've mobilized to put an end to the menace, hence our peaceful demonstration, concluded the youths.
