At the recent Ibrahim Governance Weekend in Marrakech, Morocco, prominent political and business leaders convened to debate some of the important issues surrounding Africa’s potential today. Among the speakers was renowned Nigerian businessman Aliko Dangote. He is the CEO and founder of the Dangote Group, which has an annual group turnover of over US$3bn and interests that span cement, agriculture, food processing and real estate across the continent.
At the forum, Dangote noted that there are relatively few African companies that have managed to reach a similar size to the Dangote Group, and he highlighted some of the reasons why he thinks this is.
