But though Mining Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala did not confirm whether he was meeting with Mr Dangote on the matter, he implied that the government may reverse the decision to cancel the licence.
The factory will rely on coal as a source of energy. The renowned businessman has also had talks with Energy minister Davis Chirchir on investments in the nascent oil and gas sector, as well energy generation.
