Alux.com The main reason for his wealth falling from 25 to 12 billion and then stabilizing at 14 billions is because of the president put into power at 2015 called buhari during his tenure due to his illiterate economic policy changes (he literally didn't finish primary school) the naira fell from 125 to a dollar to about 400 at it's lowest point here dangote was 12 billion now before due to policies by the governor of the central bank of Nigeria after he was finally able to wrestle some control of the economy from the current president, he was able to stabilize the naira to about 360 to a dollar which is where dangote is 14 billion now
With so many Nigerians on Alux, be sure many more billionaires are on the way. You are right Alux, Dangote gets along very well with every government to monopolistic favours and trust the government heads get a slice of the business. But Nigerians are please that unlike politicians stacking up money abroad, he invests in Nigeria and creates many employment.
I believe it is good that he does have monopoly of such industries because Nigeria needs all the help it can get and most Nigeria is having a hard time due to corruption in the various realms of money making industries. It is also overtly religious which also plays a major part in why it still holds rather retrogressive ideas and in the fact that it is a developing country. We need more men like dangote
Only thing I felt that he did those people wrong and pushing them off the land. He could have gave them money just like we do .If it was nothing but 1000 something is better than nothing. But other than that I tip my head off to him, Very smart guy
Finally Naija is going to have refiners in their soil, I salute u for thinking of African, the crooked politicians are busy in stealing their countries money n dumping it in western world n also Arabs countries while their citizens are struggling to survive in Europe, America, S. Arabian peninsula because their leaders are not very creative n aggressive to create jobs for the citizens instead of Investing on the citizens they are busy borrowing money from the highest bidder n turned around to share the illgoted money among themselves thereby creating depths to the nation they're only good in accumulating unnecessary title's to bully their neighbors, playing Golf with the slave master's making unnecessary friends, no good hospital's, no good research center for traditional medicine, no electricity twenty four hours to increase the power of productions of goods, no good drinking water, no good Roads, no good recreational center for elderly people, but if they died they wants to buried in NIgeria is Nigeria a burial ground? These craps need to be stopped the politicians need to grow up they are busy boosting the economy of the slave masters while their citizens are in pain crying for help.
7th was a lie. No land issues. He recovered land from water through dredging activities around Lekki, Lagos where he recovered land bigger than Victoria Island in Lagos costing him billions to do. There is no preferential treatment as well. Bad and failed Nigerian competitors make up such stories
I have been a very passionate fan of your channel, till today when I saw this video about Africa's richest man, Aliko Dangote. It is very apparent that your organisation is also guilty of the cancer that has pervaded most white-controlled media around the world; a falsified and tainted narration of the African story in all spheres.
You have made various spurious allegations while still trying to hide under being transparent and unbiased. Your use of language is deceptive and hypocritical. It is noteworthy to mention that I have watched many of your videos (you can check your logs or analytics to verify that) and I have just realised that the mode of narration changed when telling the story of an African. I must say that the cancer of distorting the story of Africa and it's people by the white media which is predicated on prejudice is evident in this video.
You call an item an allegation but as you continue the narration, you quickly changed the tone away from reported speech to the active which exhibit your belief in the allegation albeit failing to give any evidence to buttress it.
It would be foolhardy of you to point out the positive points you gave to dilute your majorly negative-toned narrative. This is a trick which has been over-used by the white media. You make one good comment and then go on to make six negative ones about a black person or community and expect the people to appreciate you for that. That is a rather evil approach to story-telling.
Let me quickly debunk your spurious allegations.
- There has been NO TIME the Dangote Group was granted MONOPOLY in ANY industry in Nigeria. There has only been times the company has been the only player in certain industries only because no other person came forward to invest in that industry/sector.
- You had 13 minutes to discuss the richest man in Africa and present him to the world and you still had enough time to make up to TEN unfounded allegations while mixing this with just a hint of achievements. You talked about deprivation of some people of their houses. This is BIG GAT LIE. Please present your evidence. If you are telling the world about him, why riddle it with so much UNFOUNDED ALLEGATIONS AND LIES?
- Almost all items was riddled with a hint of negativity no matter how note-worthless the information is.
If I say I am disappointed in your strategies, that would amount to giving you too much credit, I am not in the least surprised, this is a common practice of the white media; constantly making vile efforts to denigrate black people's achievements by craftily diluting the narrations with exaggerated allegations and negative language-play.
I would advise you guys check and cleanse your notion of the black man. It seems like the cancer of prejudice against the black man is staunchly rooted in your genes that no matter how much you try to hide it, it is brought to manifest. That is even if you are trying to hide it in the least.
Before I conclude, I have a question for your team, and this can go for other white-dominated media also:
In all your videos I have watched, I have never heard or seen expressions like 'Richest White Person'.
Is there a reason for the expression 'Richest Black Man' for Dangote?
And this also goes for expressions like 'Most Influential Black Person'. I have never seen 'Most Influential White Person'. 'And so on.
Why define them on the basis of colour. Why don't you do same for white people?
I look forward to your reasonable response.
If you guys can act noble and investigate these allegations before you spread it to the world, that'll be great.
Mr Aliko Dangote is what hard work and dedication is about. He's blessed. Would want to see him serve his Brotherns more and care for the poor in Africa more.. That is where his fortune will be sustained. 💝🐢⛺🗼🐫🐯🐢💝
The main reason for his wealth falling from 25 to 12 billion and then stabilizing at 14 billions is because of the president put into power at 2015 called buhari during his tenure due to his illiterate economic policy changes (he literally didn't finish primary school) the naira fell from 125 to a dollar to about 400 at it's lowest point here dangote was 12 billion now before due to policies by the governor of the central bank of Nigeria after he was finally able to wrestle some control of the economy from the current president, he was able to stabilize the naira to about 360 to a dollar which is where dangote is 14 billion now
Dangote and Adenuga are just two of Nigeria's billionaires. ....the fact is, Nigeria probably has more billionaires than all other African nations combined. However, most of, if not all, of these wealth are ill gotten, forcing most of these guys to fly under the rader. And then, there are others like Femi Otedola, Folorunsho Alakija, Bola Tinubu, Danjuma, Razaq Okoya and Chief Adeleke (DavidO's father ). Nigeria is a rich nation with bad leaders. Fact: South Korea at one point, used to borrow money from Nigeria, look at the two nations today ??!! God help Naija......
I watched the video and I also took time to read several comments made.
I want to add that while monopoly is bad for the nation as it kills small businesses, many people have had some opportunity one time or the other and turned to criminals enriching themselves and their families. Dangote did the following:
1. Brought revenue worth billions of dollars
2. Created a place for Nigeria in the world business market
3. Created jobs for millions of people of which many are millionaires
3. Became a support also for the people of the country through philanthropist
4. Standing in gaps where the government of the country is not measuring up.
I think we should give it up for him.
All these didn't just come by mistake, he proved himself.
Advise: work hard and prove yourself, there is room for more billionaires to emerge.
he's not really a monopoly... its just that the shere size of he's businesses makes him look like one.... but then again hes made serious investments in most of these industries before now... now his just reaping from his investments
This is a great video, ALux, It’s nice to learn about some of the great men of Africa. When trying to amass wealth in the means of becoming greater sometimes you may do unpopular things. However it’s not how you start sometimes, It’s about how you finish. To me it seems with his philanthropy work he should be able to erase some of the not so popular things that he might have done.
Dangote is a great man and we love him so much here in Nigeria. If not for corruption, we would have had many of his kind but the rest are corrupt politicians who would rather dig a hole and bury their ill-gotten money rather than invest in the economy.
