Aliko-Dangote, who made this disclosure at the just concluded Lagos International Trade Fair during the “Dangote Day”, said since inception, the desire of the President of Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote, was to assist the three tiers of government in the country in eradicating poverty.
According to her, the best way for Dangote Group to do this will be to contribute to eradicating youth unemployment in the country.
She noted that Dangote was the highest employer of labour in Nigeria, outside the Federal Government, adding that the priority of the group was to create more employment opportunities for the teeming Nigerian youths.
“The desire of our President, Aliko Dangote, is to ensure that Nigerian youths are ably employed, because it is only when this happens, that they can also contribute their own quota to the growth and development of the county. And once the youths are also positively engaged, the security challenges of the country will abate,” Aliko-Dangote stated.
