President of the Dangote Group, Mr Aliko Dangote, says his group of companies’ expansion into agro-allied local production of tomato, rice and sugar is the game-changer.
He also noted that the expansion is in line with the Federal Government’s focus on agriculture.
The Africa’s richest man said this on Monday while addressing journalists at the Nigerian Stock Exchange in Lagos State, south-west Nigeria.
He also closed the first trading day of the week, in company of top stock exchange executives, as well as Mr Femi Otedola and the NSE President, Mr Aigboje Aig-Imokhuede.
Mr Dangote, who celebrated his 60th birthday with the closing gong, gave an update on his ongoing 750,000 barrels per day refinery in Lagos.
