The Federal government has ordered the re-opening of Obajana cement factory in Kogi State.
The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, made this known at the end of the Council meeting in Abuja on Friday.
The interior minister also advised that all issues of controversy related to the factory be resolved in accordance with the law.
Kogi state government had shut down the Obajana factory over allegations of tax evasion and unresolved ownership.
The management of Dangote Group however said it had concluded plans to approach the court to seek legal redress on the matter.
