Aliko Dangote Vows To Takeover Arsenal In 2021 by Shiey(m): 6:01pm On Jan 13
Africa's richest man Aliko Dangote again confirms Arsenal takeover intent with 2021 vow

Nigerian business magnate Aliko Dangote has once again declared his intention to buy Arsenal Football Club… in 2021.

During the last five years, the 62 year-old has made separate claims, on no less than five occasions, about his want to lead an Emirates takeover.

Dangote, who is the 96th wealthiest man in the world, according to Bloomberg's Billionaire's Index, started his first business at the age of 21 and also founded Africa's largest cement provider, stated in 2018 his desire to make a move for the North London club in 2020.

"We will go after Arsenal from 2020… even if somebody buys, we will still go after it,” he told Reuters in 2018.

Now he has altered his plans, amid a holdup with his Dangote Refinery project.

The Dangote Refinery remains under construction in the remote Ibeju-Lekki suburb of Lagos and is expected to be one of the world's largest oil refineries once complete.

However, with that project having experienced numerous delays and now not set to be completed until 2021, Dangote's timescale has changed.

In an interview with Bloomberg, broadcast on the most recent edition The David Rubinstein Show, Dangote - who has an estimated net worth of $14.1bn - reiterates his intentions for the Premier League outfit.

He states: "It is a team that yes I would like to buy some day, but what I keep saying is we have $20billion worth of projects and that's what I really want to concentrate on.

"I'm trying to finish building the company and then after we finish, maybe some time in 2021 we can.

"I'm not buying Arsenal right now, I'm buying Arsenal when I finish all these projects, because I'm trying to take the company to the next level.”

Arsenal are currently owned by Stan Kroenke, through his Kroenke Sports & Entertainment group, with the American having come in for widespread criticism in recent years.

The federal government of Nigeria won't be there in England to make favorable policies for the club's monopoly.
RIP in advance to Arsenal FC.

God have mercy the day I'll meet him in real life, I no no welda him strong pass me or not, one thing I know for is..it's gonna be a fight till death.

I can't let him live even one single day again, either I kill him or I seize his phone

See honestly speaking, the fight go like be Joshua Vs Tyson.

A good Samaritan suggest I should order for Barbecue, he'll come to deliver at my door step in person.
But the truth is, that guy has no BBQ business anywhere. He's on BMC payroll.

If he truly owns a BBQ he'd have advertised here for once.... BBQ is a cover up for BMC

If you know you know!

Dangote's refinery is build by our oil money from the south. The Northerners are very subtle in making it look like Dangote property all because they are preparing themselves for any possible crisis that may hit our un negotiable union in future.

This man is smart, he knows that by 2021 - Arsenal would have relegated to the championship.
The value would have depreciated, Kroenke will be willing to cash out by then.

Never in my life, will I ever stoop so low to think that there is no GOD
Not when my life and everything I had seen in this world has prove to me that, there is God.
There was nothing I came with in this world and
There's nothing I'll take back from this world.
It was naked we all came to this world
So in everything, let try to mind the END...
It doesn't matter who you are
It doesn't matter what you do please always try to give God a chance in your life.
