Buhari extols Dangote's entrepreneurship virtues at 60

President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday congratulated Africa’s renowned businessman and philanthropist, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, on his 60th birthday.

Buhari, in a congratulatory message by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, extolled the global business mogul's entrepreneurship qualities.

He said Dangote "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."

He also commended "the humility, simplicity and cosmopolitan outlook of the entrepreneur who 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."

Buhari joined the business world, Dangote’s friends and family in congratulating the Forbes’ rated richest African and black man for "his patriotism and kind heartedness in always making sacrifices to safeguard the health of the nation, most remarkably the polio and Ebola interventions."

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

President Buhari prayed Almighty God grant Dangote more wisdom, good health and longer life to serve his country and humanity.
