Dangote, Who is Nigeria’s and Africa’s richest man, said during an interview with Channels TV that there is a lot of things happening in Nigeria, and the elections would not deter his companies from investing in the country. He said:
“I think from the business community, things are going to continue to grow in terms of trajectory. When I say it; I mean there are quite a lot of things that are happening in Nigeria.”
“We didn’t really bother whether election period or not, we have been investing heavily in the country and we would continue to invest. I think we would have better days ahead.”
