kaylaw777: Yes his rich ,his famous ,he want people to knw him, and they av known him ,but he don't pay his workers well, they work like slave ,they pay them little, and he dash out money just to make name and suffer his workers, he cheat the workers a lot .a company of 1700 staffs no union.I work with dangote group the cement factory obajana am a senior staff there I knw wht we ar facing
Not Aliko's fault. Maybe the assigned payment for ur position is supposed to be 50k, the head management would look for someone that would work it for 30k per month and 20k will go into their pocket. Aliko doesn't know about this.

mrvocalprowess- U be small pikin when it comes to Nija matter. I know how the maritime sector works and i know what iam saying. Dangote that enjoys waivers from FG - monopoly and tax evasion.

Come and see the demurrage his goods/containers accumulate for ports and he no dey pay?

Why is he called an Obasanjo boy, you think this is for nothing!!! the other day Prof Akinyemi accused them(billionaires/money bags) all during his presentation in Ondo state and did you hear anyone of them wen talk back say Prof statement was a fallacy?

Why was he fighting ibeto back then? or was it not in this country that maryam Abacha took him to the cleaners on how rich he confess to be. you think she was just saying this for saying sake.

[quote
author=rodeo0070]With a net worth of $16.1bn as of March 2013, the
President, Dangote Group, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, has moved up in the
latest world richest ranking to number 43 from 76 in 2012.

According to the list which was released on Monday by Forbes, Dangote
and the Chairman of Globalom, Dr. Mike Adenuga were the only Nigerians
on the list.

Dangote, 55, however, retained his position as the richest man in Africa
and the richest among manufacturers in the world with a net worth of
$16.1bn.

Adenuga, 59, on the other hand, ranked 269 on the list with a net worth
of $4.7bn.

The world billionaires, list presented Carlos Slim Helu, a Mexican as
the world richest man with a net worth of $73bn, while Bill Gates of
United States came second with a net worth of the $67bn.

Others are Armancio Ortega of Spain ($57bn); Warren Buffet, United
States ($53.5bn); and Larry Ellison of US with $43bn net worth, coming
third, fourth and fifth, respectively.

Forbes said, “To compile net worths, we value individuals’ assets,
including stakes in public and private companies, real estate, yachts,
art and cash – and account for debt.

“We attempt to vet these numbers with all billionaires. Some cooperate;
others don’t. We also consult an array of outside experts in various
fields.”

The past year has been eventful for Dangote. In October, he sold off a
controlling stake in his flour milling company to Tiger Brands of South
Africa and pocketed $190m in cash.

In February, his Dangote Sugar Refineries acquired a 95 per cent stake
in Savannah Sugar in a bid to maintain its dominant position in the
Nigerian sugar industry.

Dangote started building his fortune more than three decades ago when he
began trading in commodities like cement, flour and sugar with a loan
he received from his maternal uncle.

He delved into full production of these items in the early 2000s and
went on to build the Dangote Group, West Africa’s largest
publicly-listed conglomerate, which now owns sugar refineries, salt
processing facilities and Dangote Cement.

God bless you!!

I've avoided logging onto nairaland for some months now (i just browse as a guest when i have time) and my life has been more productive. I logged on specifically to LIKE your post.

You couldn't have said it any better. Losers are here whining like witches & wizards, while real men & women are getting on with it IN THE REAL WORLD. I find hard to see how you can be a regular poster ( complainer) on nairaland, and carry on with anything productive in the REAL WORLD.

Re: Dangote Is World's 43rd Richest Man - Forbes by back2sender: 1:34pm On Mar 05, 2013
Akitun thanks for that ur comment. Na only in this country we dey create billionaires over night when we dont know d business wen dem dey do. Abi na spirit dey buy thier goods they are producing in thier factory?. Dangote wealth is not from salt n sugar alone, there r many things in between.

Iam not against been rich but not when the person is benefiting from FG and creating the impression sey na im enrepreneur spirit alone made him what he is today.

I will rather celebrate those selling pure water and making a success out of it than somebody like dangote.

We no dey forget anything. Is Obasanjo still President? NO. Yet Dangote is still waxing stronger. From 12.1Bn to 16.4Bn between 2012 to 2013.

What are your excuses for failure? He sees none of them.
Re: Dangote Is World's 43rd Richest Man - Forbes by Nobody: 1:40pm On Mar 05, 2013
The truth is Bill Gates is the only man who has touched $100bn networth but decided to give 50% to charity and i see him toping the list next year bridging the 6Bn gap between him and Carlos Slim.
