NGO decorates Dangote with Bridge Builder Award

- Advertisment -

The President of Dangote Group, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, has received a ‘Bridge Builder’ award, conferred on him by a Non Governmental Organisation, Love to the World Initiative Bridge Builders.

The group’s regional spokesman, Abubakar Jibrin, in a statement on Wednesday stated that the award was in recognition of Dangote’s “avowed Pan-African posture, laced with his nationalistic approach in locating his industries and his employment policies.”

The statement said, “The richest man in Africa and business mogul bagged the award for distinguishing himself in the promotion of peaceful co-existence, poverty alleviation and hospitality across the nation and Africa at large.”

The Chief Executive of the NGO, Josephine Anumbor, said that the award was aimed at mobilising Nigerians to change from being selfish to becoming selfless and to contribute to national development.

She said DANGOTE Industries Limited was a good example of the drive to curb unemployment and uplift Nigerians through various services.

The Director-General of the National Orientation Agency, Garba Abari, said the awardee deserved global recognition for giving succour to the less privileged.
