President Muhammadu Buhari has extolled Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, who turns 60 tomorrow.

Buhari in a statement Sunday by his media adviser, Femi Adesina joined the business world, Dangote’s friends and family in congratulating Africa’s richest man for reaching the diamond milestone.

Buhari noted Dangote’s patriotism and kind-heartedness “in always making sacrifices to safeguard the health of the nation, most remarkably the polio and Ebola interventions”.

“The President believes the global business mogul remains a shining example of the virtues of choosing entrepreneurship from an early age, treading the path of diligence, perseverance and continuous learning to build some of the world’s largest manufacturing and distribution companies, with household names in Nigeria and beyond, “Buhari said in a statement by Mr. Femi Adesina, his media adviser.

President Buhari commended Dangote’s humility, simplicity and cosmopolitan outlook.

He especially remarked on how Dangote “defies ethnic and religious persuasions in extending support to the poor and vulnerable, providing employment opportunities without discrimination, while inspiring and mentoring young Nigerians to greatness.”

The President also acknowledged Dangote’s role in bolstering the economy through continuous engagement and counselling of governments on best practices in promoting the ease of doing business.
