According to the Nigerian billionaire, Africa needs "up to 20 leaders such as the presidents of Ghana, Rwanda and Côte d'Ivoire"

For Nigerian billionaire Aliko Dangote, Africa needs a new group of visionary leaders who can inject a real dynamic of development throughout the continent.

“We do not need the 54 countries [Africa: Ed] to have visionary leaders. We need a maximum of 20 like the presidents of Ghana, Rwanda and Ivory Coast, “said Aliko Dangote, at a forum organized by the African Center for Economic Transformation (ACET) , in Accra, Ghana.

Continuing, the Nigerian tycoon has particularly praised the work done by President Nana Akufo-Addo since his accession to the head of Ghana. Aliko Dangote noted efforts to improve the business environment that has attracted more foreign direct investment. But also actions to promote access to education for Ghanaians, by adopting the policy of free secondary education (SHS) in 2017.

The Nigerian billionaire also pointed out that industrial activities have increased, under the policy of President Akufo-Addo called “One district, one factory”.

“Most recently, the government has significantly reduced import duties to make the country’s ports more attractive in the subregion,” he added.

Thus, for Aliko Dangote, these are all actions that have allowed the Ghanaian president to be particularly appreciated by “many people” around the world.
