Contrary to the insinuations in the public domain that, Aliko Dangote became a billionaire, by leveraging on his family wealth.

Dangote is the topmost producer of Sugar, Salt, Flour and other consumables.

He recently commissioned the largest petrochemical company in Ibeju Lekki axis of Lagos State and he is now the 95th richest man in the world.

In 2019, to show a positive increment in his Business, Dangote added about $4b to his wealth. He is currently contemplating on opening offices in the UK and United States, to preserve his wealth.

He noted that his father was also rich but he did not allow the wealthy to get into his head as he worked very hard to build his own wealth.

Dangote, however, encouraged young people not to give up, and continue to strive, that their preparation will meet with the needed opportunity, and that will change their stories for good forever.

Aliko Dangote is the richest African man and top 100 wealthiest men on earth.
