Dangote Promises To Give Out Part Of His Wealth To Charity

Nigerian billionaire and Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote has promised to give out a portion of his wealth to the poor and needy, Gossips24 has learnt.

Dangote revealed his plans of giving out a large part of his wealth to charity just like Microsoft founder, Bill Gates who is the second richest man in the world.

Speaking at this year’s Goalkeepers’ event hosted by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in New York, he expressed his gratitude to Gates’ philanthropy which is well known in Nigeria and some parts of Africa.

He also thanked Gates for inspiring, influencing, and making him a better person through his charity works across the world.

“When I started my foundation in 1994, I never realised we had this massive challenge in the health sector.

“Really, it was mind-boggling when we had this agreement to collaborate with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and that really opened my eyes to realise that there are a lot of challenges in health.

“At that time I didnt have the opportunity of meeting Biill but meeting Bill changed me into a different person. This is somebody that has nothing to do with us in Africa or Nigeria but he is putting his money and his soul into everything.
