Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote has been rated 11th of the 50 world’s greatest leaders, according to Fortune Magazine’s sixth annual leader’s list.

The list according to the American multinational business magazine comprises leaders in “business, government, philanthropy, and the arts, and all over the globe, transforming the world and inspiring others to do the same.”

The rating focused mainly on the businesses run by the men and how they have used it to impact their society positively.

“These thinkers, speakers, and doers make bold choices and take big risks- and move others to do the same,” the magazine said.

“Dangote is Africa’s richest person—worth $16.4 billion, according to Bloomberg—and the four publicly traded companies under the umbrella of his Dangote Industries now account for about a third of the value of the Nigerian stock exchange.

“That wealth is based on a big bet on Nigeria’s economic independence: Dangote’s peers give him credit for helping the country become self-sufficient in the sectors in which his companies compete (cement, agriculture, mining, and petroleum).

“He’s now converting his wealth into impactful philanthropy: Dangote’s foundation, the largest in Africa, has helped establish a top-tier business school at Nigeria’s Bayero University; it’s also teaming up with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to fight chronic malnutrition in Nigeria,” Fortune writes about Dangote.

The top ten leaders are:-
