Engineers at the plant conducted them round the premises where they inspected five hundred containers and made an observation of difficulty of water log.
The mill is also experiencing difficulty in the employment of skilled labourers, which has become a wakeup call to youths, as well as men and women in the area.
Equally, the Governor commended the Dangote group of companies, in particular Aliko Dangote, for initiating the project and invited more investors to set up factories in Kebbi State.
The site engineers, Mr. Sundeep and Mr. Kabir, informed Senator Abubakar Atiku Bagudu that all containers haven been delivered to the project site and installation of facilities was in progress.
They announced that the rice mill has the capacity to produce 32 tonnes per hour with 32 silos in place.
The engineers however complained to the Governor that they were having a problem of skilled labourers, which made it necessary to bring them from Kano and Lagos, asking Kebbi engineers to intervene.
