Bill Gates Hails Dangote For Making List Of World’s 100 Most Influential People

Africa’s wealthiest man Aliko Dangote has received praise from world’s richest man Bill Gates for making the list of 100 most influential persons on earth. Dangote and Finance Minister, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, were the only Nigerians on the list released on Wednesday by the famous TIME Magazine.

In a tribute in honour of Dangote, Gates, who is Microsoft Founder and Co-Chair, Bill and Melinda Gates, dwelled extensively on the philanthropic gestures of the President of the Dangote Group in the areas of health, especially his polio eradication and job creation efforts.
Gates described Dangote as a man who does good in addition to doing well.Continue..

He wrote: 

“… his business activities drive economic growth across the continent. That’s impressive, but I know him best as a leader constantly in search of ways to bridge the gap between private business and public health. It’s for that reason he helped create the Nigeria Private Sector Health Alliance. And it’s for that reason he is an advocate for agricultural research and malaria control.”

Aliko was classified in the Titans category which boasts of eminent world personalities like Hillary Clinton, former USA Secretary of State, Jeff Bezoz, Tony Fadell and Janet Yellen, among others.
