If every Nigerian rich person could impact lives like Aliko Dangote, through massive investments and deliberate efforts to better the lots of the society, there would have been far less suffering in the land today.

This was the view of Kano State Governor, Umar Ganduje, while assessing the impact the businesses and philanthropic gesture had brought to the society. The governor, who described the African richest man and President, Chief Executive of the Dangote Group as the ‘Pride of the Black Race,’ used the 

Dangote Special Day, at the Kano International Trade Fair to register his position.

Represented by the state Commissioner of Commerce, Industry, Cooperatives and Tourism, Ahmad Rabiu, the Governor said Danngote is synonymous with development given the giant strides recorded in the different sectors of the economy. 

His words: "Dangote Group and Dangote Foundation have touched lives in the different states in Nigeria and beyond.

“There is no household that does not use Dangote product. Every where you go there are Dangote products and services from which many are benefitting.

"Many sectors of the economy have been boosted- Infrastructure, Agriculture, the Mining sector, Health, Education etc Dangote is surely a man of the people"

The governor, expressed gratitude to the foremost Industrialist for his contribution and support to the Fairs conducted by Kano State over the years, many of which recorded immense success.

He said there is no doubt that the 38th Kano International Trade Fair will also be a success because Dangote was involved.

He called on leaders, wealthy individuals and organisations to emulate his unique qualities for a better society by making life a lot easier for the people especially at the grassroots.

Dangote had earlier praised President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration for its diversification agenda, saying had put the Nigerian economy on the right trajectory for growth.

The  Africa foremost industrialist said diversification would take the country to the next level, and move it away from overdependence on oil.

Represented by General Manager Stakeholder Management, Dangote Group, Bello Abdullahi Dan-Musa, Dangote maintained that the nation should continue to explore opportunities in the various sectors to grow the economy.

"We are committed to diversification as it is what Nigeria needs and indeed Africa, to add value to our basic endowments for economic growth.

"That is why we are also exploring opportunities in the different sectors, cement, flour, salt, sugar and recently, Oil and Gas as well as Agricbusiness to move the nation forward,” he said.

"Dangote businesses are meant to impact the lives of the people in different ways, that is why Dangote Group is structured to deliver basic goods and services that are essential for improving standard of living of the general populace, and have presence in 13 different countries.

Last week, Dangote commissioned its cement plant in Congo Brazaville.

Its mission in the next five to ten years is not only to be the largest brand in Africa but also be amongst the top 20 companies of the World.

Hajiya Maijidda Modibbo of the Corporate Communications, Dangote Group, spoke briefly about Dangote Rice out-grower scheme in line with President Buhari's policy to reinvigorate the economy, saying it has gone a long way in enhancing farmers and their households.

Participants at the fair thronged Dangote Pavillion to see what Dangote has to offer.  They include Dangote Cement, Dangote Sugar, Dangote Salt, Dangote Rice, Dangote Flour, DanQ, among others.
