The Executive Director of the Dangote Group, Hajiya Halima Aliko Dangote, has urged millennials in Nigeria and across Africa to diversify from service-oriented enterprises to manufacturing and agriculture in a bid to fast-track the development of the continent and better life for its nationals.

Dangote spoke just as the flagship of the conglomerate, the Dangote Cement Plc, commenced the training of its newly engaged managers in order to sustain its leadership and competitiveness in the industry.

Ambode, who inspected the progress of work alongside cabinet members; billionaire businessmen, Aliko Dangote and Femi Otedola; among other businessmen, said the investments and the infrastructural renewal in the Lekki-Epe axis simultaneously ongoing were geared towards preparing the State for industrial revolution taking place in Nigeria and by extension the West African region

Speaking at the just concluded Kogi State Economic Summit in Lokoja, the businessman said the absence of solid mineral buying centers and lapidaries has enabled the flourishing of cartels who engage in illegal sale of minerals out of the country, with resultant loss of solid minerals revenue from taxes and royalties.

Dangote in a statement revealed that its reaction became very necessary as a result of its status as a publicly quoted company and to further re-assure its shareholders, the regulators and members of the public that the company is and remains a responsible corporate citizen.
