Africa’s richest person, Aliko Dangote, has expressed the desire to further consolidate his existing investments in Zambia and other African countries by exploring opportunities in the energy and agricultural sectors. Dangote was speaking when he paid a courtesy call on the Zambian President, Edgar Lungu, to express his gratitude for the enabling environment that the country was offering investors at every level.
The business mogul has a cement factory in Zambia, which employs hundreds of the citizens of the host country. Dangote urged the Zambian government to roll out policies that would encourage massive investments in the country.
Dangote said, “I am here not only to explore investment opportunities and consolidate our existing business relations, but also to congratulate you for your victory in the last general elections. I wish you many years of success as you guide your nation to greater heights and prosperity.
