Aliko Dangote



Africa’s richest man and President, Dangote Group, AlikoDangote, has written an article for publication in the coming edition of Youth Enterprise With Innovation in Nigeria Connect.

According to a statement signed by the Project Director, YouWiN, Mr. Dennis Chukwu, the article which will focus on ‘starting small’ is billed for publication in five newspapers including the punch.



Citing an exclusive interview with Dangote, the statement quoted him as saying, “I have always had a passion for business. As a child, I remember trading in confectionaries among my classmates and as I grew older, I gathered business experience working with my uncle.”

The statement added that the article, which will be published under the “YouWiN! Connect Academy” section, also shared vital success and motivational tips for entrepreneurs.

It quoted the Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, as saying that Dangote’s  interest and involvement in the enterprise education initiative of the ministry was  a watershed moment for the programme.

She said, “There’s no better way to help entrepreneurs succeed than to have icons like Dangote share their personal success stories with them through an increasingly valuable platform like YouWiN! Connect. This is why the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration reaffirmed its commitment to the project in its enhanced form.”


She urged other successful entrepreneurs to follow Dangote’s example.

In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
