How I became 25th world’s richest man - Dangote

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 in Nigeria.
“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.

  1. but Nigerians themselves don't read those policies and just live... those policies are for everybody! if i know fawawo is bad why cant i import what is legal? and if those policies are not for the masses then wen talk, but when we don't know the policy itself, we lost both end and the capitalist rule over our ignorance!
    My people are destroy not because of money, not because of boko haram, in fact boko haram is as a result of our lack of knowledge!
