Alhaji Aliko Dangote, the Chairman of Dangote Group, has distanced himself from fake news circulating on whatsapp and social media that he said he is more affected with the current economic realities than common Nigerians.

Dangote, in a statement urged the good people of the country to dismiss the news as fake, unfounded and baseless. He is hoping that good times are coming ahead.

“Anything that affects Nigerians affects us”, said the statement.

Dangote Group manufactures and cement, fertilizer and recently petroleum products production. In the food sector it is into the production of only sugar, salt and seasoning as the moment.

“Like every other Nigerian, we buy essential food items in the market for our own use and give out to the needy as means of charity.” Dangote said.

The African richest man wondered how some unscrupulous elements are hellbent in pitching his company against the Federal Government, emphasizing that he is a businessman not a politician, and not at any time he ever criticized the government.

“Our company operates based on the laws of the state and follows any means to give relief to Nigerians,” he stressed.

Therefore, we request Nigerians to please disregard messages that are not directly from the company, aimed at spreading rumours to cause confusion in the country.
