Dangote Group is a business brand which has become synonymous with the name of its famous Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Alhaji Aliko Dangote who was recently listed by Forbes’ magazine as the world’s 53rd richest man. With headquarters in the commercial city of Lagos, Nigeria, Dangote Group that was started at a mushroom level in 1977, has grown like the mustard seed to become iconic in the African business landscape and a global force. The company has began a pan – African business expansion to touch various lives in the continent.
Having rooted deeply in the Nigeria soil, where the business and services of Dangote Group are felt in all nooks and crannies of this most populous African country, the company has taken giant strides to spread its tentacles to both Anglo and francophone African countries. From Nigeria to Ghana, Togo, Zambia, Cameroon and Senegal where the company has commenced building a gigantic cement factory, Dangote Group known for its sugar, flour, cement and shipping businesses is on a major race to penetrate various African countries – mainly in the Sub-Saharan region. Much credit is given to the astute leadership of the company’s Chairman, Aliko Dangote and his management team.
