President of Dangote Group and Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, has assured Nigerians that topmost on his priority is how to contribute his own quota towards reducing the high rate of un-employment in the country.
Dangote revealed this while Speaking at the ground breaking ceremony of its new 6 million metric tons capacity cement plant in Okpella, Edo State last week. He said with more of his cement plants ready for inauguration in the next few months, more qualified youth will be gainfully employed.
Noting that the Okpella Cement Plant will employ a minimum of 45,000 Nigerians in both direct and indirect capacity, he said the number of Nigerians that would be employed in its ongoing fertilizer and petrochemical plants, would be far more than the cement plants figure.
He urged the youths to shun unpatriotic acts, assuring them that the country is surely on the right track of growth and development.
