THE DIVISION OF NIGERIA WILL AFFECT MY POSITION AS AFRICA RICHEST MAN.
The president of DANGOTE group ALIKO DANGOTE has called on those agitating for the division of Nigeria stop it because it would affect his position as the richest African.
Dangote Group owns salt factories and flour mills and is a major importer of rice, fish, pasta, cement, and fertiliser.The company exports cotton, cashew nuts, cocoa, sesame seeds, and ginger to several countries. It also has major investments in real estate, banking, transport, textiles, oil, and gas.
Speaking in Minna, NIGER state, DANGOTE stated that for the past ten years Nigeria has held that position of having the richest African.
According to him;
I want to tell those agitating for the disintegration of NIGERIA that it would affect my position as the richest African. Not only that, if this great country is divided tomorrow, i won’t hold that position and our great country won’t hold it too after over ten years.
Togetherness of this great country will continue to put Nigeria as a country that produces the richest African and that would always bring respect to Nigeria and Nigerians.
At the age of 21, Aliko Dangote borrowed $3,000 from his uncle to import and sell agricultural commodities in Nigeria, his native country. His business venture quickly became a success, and as a result, he managed to repay the entire loan within three months of starting operations.
The cement and sugar manufacturing guru from Nigeria landed at No. 162 with a net worth of $8.3 billion. He is not only Africa’s richest man but the world’s richest Black man. As the CEO and founder of Africa’s largest cement producer, Dangote Cement.
Let’s all work to keep this country one!.
