BUSINESS mogul, Aliko Dangote, has said that his achievements as the richest man in Africa and 25th richest man on earth were attributable to the favourable policies of the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan.
Dangote disclosed this in Nairobi when President Goodluck Jonathan met with the Nigerian community in Kenya.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the meeting was part of
the activities lined up for the three-day visit of President Jonathan
to Kenya, which began Thursday.
Dangote, who was on the entourage of the president to Kenya, told the
gathering that Jonathan had done a lot to improve the business climate
“I want to tell you what the president has been doing in Nigeria. He
is very humble and may not want to sing about what he has been doing.
“I will tell you what he has been doing to Nigerians and to some of
us who are in business in Nigeria. We are very grateful for some of the
policies he has introduced.
“As you all know, without good policies of government, there is no
way a person like me from a big town like Kano can rise from a humble
beginning to become the 25th richest person on earth.
“Without the policies of the president and also making sure that
there is consistency in the policies of the government, this could not
have happened,” he said.
