Nigeria: Africa’s Top Donor Aliko Dangote Gives Out US$185M in Two Years

Aliko DangoteAfrica’s richest person and the continent’s top donor, Aliko Dangote, has doled out about N30billion (US $185 million) in humanitarian gesture within two years, a statement issued by the Dangote Group has revealed.

According to the statement, the business mogul would be upping his philanthropic works across Africa, starting from his home country Nigeria.

The group that has made whopping donations across Africa said, “Africa must begin to take responsibilities by shaping the condition of its people.”

The statement quoted Dangote as saying, “About this philanthropy, I think from this year, I personally want to take it very seriously. I want to be much more aggressive than what we have had in the past.

“We already have a foundation, which will do all these things, but I am trying to see what we can do to encourage not only Nigerians but other Africans.”

He added: “I am not going to give all my money to charity, but I am going to try my best and give part of that money to charity. I am working hard on it.”

The statement said in Benue State alone, the group has been running an annual scholarship scheme worth $10 million to indigenes of Gboko communities.
