Aliko Dangote shares how he withdrew over N3.6 billion To Really believe he is rich (video)
Nigeria’s Aliko Dangote makes a strange revelation about what he did with his money some years ago.
The billionaire was recently interviewed while speaking at the Mo Ibrahim governance weekend which is ongoing in Abidjan.
Fielding a question from the host Mo Ibrahim, about how he felt when he earned his first million, Africa’s richest man explained that the target for many business owners when they start out is usually to make their first million.
He said he achieved that feat and after a year, he realized he was about N12 billion rich. However, he was not completely convinced that he was a rich man as it appeared the money was just in figures.
To convince himself, Dangote revealed that on a certain day, he drove to the bank and withdrew the sum of over N3.6 billion, arranged it in his trunk and drove back all the way home.
On getting home and taking a second look at the money, it was at that point that he believed that he was truly a rich man.
