Nigeria’s president, Maj. Gen Muhammadu Buhari has celebrated billionaire entrepreneur and Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, on his 63rd birthday.
The Nigerian leader wished Dangote and his loved ones a splendid day as he continues to bless humanity with his riches.
The president, in a congratulatory message by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, on Friday saluted the philanthropic spirit of Africa’s wealthiest man, saying:
“It is one thing to be so blessed, and another to use the wealth to the glory of God and for the good of humanity.”
He said Dangote has always stood to be counted whenever it mattered, judging by his generous contributions to the fight against Polio, Ebola disease, coronavirus, and many other challenges which have faced Nigeria and the African continent.
Buhari, therefore, prayed God to grant the “great son of Nigeria” long life, good health and further successes in all areas of endeavour.
