Aliko Dangote, the richest man in Africa spoke at Mo Ibrahim governance weekend ongoing in Abidjan and disclosed that he once withdrew $10m just to look at it.
“The way it is that when you first start business, your target is to make your first million. Fine, I did that,”
“After a year or so, I realised that I had much more, and I said ok, fine, all these numbers are just written numbers.
“One day I went to a bank, and at that time, there were no restrictions, and I wrote a cheque and cashed $10m from the bank and put it in the boot of my vehicle, and I went home and I opened it and I looked at $10m and I said ‘now I believe I have money’.”
