Chairman of Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote, has proposed turnover of $30 billion for his businesses in the next two years.

According to him, though the company’s annual turnover is about $4 billion now, with the completion and running of the refinery, fertilizer, petrochemicals and other businesses, the company’s turnover should be about $30 billion in the next two years.

Dangote, during an interaction with some reporters, also lauded the federal government’s efforts in the agricultural sector.

He said the government’s serious focus on the sector would boost the nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and also mean less reliance on the oil sector for growth and development.

He said: “We have massive arable land, we have water; we have the right climate; so, the population growth does not really make me nervous. So, I think the federal government is doing very well by focusing more on the agricultural sector. We just have to tilt towards agriculture and manufacturing as against our oil-reliant economy.”

He also praised the government’s drive in getting more revenue from taxes, noting that the restructuring of the nation’s tax system will generate more revenue for the government.

He stated: “Sixty per cent of the government revenue is coming from oil but the government is doing quite a lot to diversify the economy by even trying to restructure the tax system because we need to make more money from taxes because as it is now, the taxes generation in Nigeria is a bit low but the government is on the right track with these innovations.”

While expressing optimism that Nigeria will be certified a polio-free nation by April, he lauded the collaboration between Aliko Dangote Foundation and Bill and Melinda Gates foundation on polio eradication in the country.

He said: “We have done quite a lot. The progress has been very tremendous in the last three years, we haven’t really had any wild virus of polio and by April, we will be certified to be a polio-free country, which means the entire, African continent will be polio-free.”

Dangote was recently said to be $4.3 billion richer in 2019 with his business investments in cement, flour and sugar.

According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, the 62-year-old businessman ended the year with a net worth of almost $15 billion, making him the 96th wealthiest man in the world at the end of 2019.

Dangote holds a significant stake in Dangote Cement, Dangote Sugar, Nascon Allied Industries and Dangote Flour Mills among many others.

Dangote incorporated his own business, selling cement at 21 and began cement manufacturing in the 1990s.

He has a crude oil refinery currently valued at $12 billion under construction.

The refinery, which would be the single largest in the world upon completion, has the capacity to meet more than Nigeria’s entire fuel consumption.
