In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the President Dangote 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 said the global business mogul 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 Dangote for his humility, simplicity and cosmopolitan outlook that defy 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.

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.

He prayed that the almighty God would grant him more wisdom, good health and longer life to serve his country and humanity.
