Dangote named among 50 most influential people globally


Aliko Dangote, president of Dangote Group has been recognized as one of the people who defined global business in 2017.

This was recently announced by Bloomberg through “The Bloomberg 50”, a new, annual, multi-platform initiative that honours 50 icons and innovators who have changed the global business landscape in measurable ways over the past year.


The Bloomberg 50 honourees were selected by the Bloomberg Businessweek team after months of input from about 2 700 journalists and analysts around the globe.

A statement on Tuesday quoted Dangote as saying, “I am very delighted with this selection and I see the recognition as a call to do more towards youth empowerment, job creation, better health for the people and economic emancipation of the African continent.”
