Dangote Reveals Plans To Relocate Office To US To Keep His Wealth Safe

Dangote

Africa’s richest man Aliko Dangote, plans to take office space in New York to help diversify his investments and avoid the risk of currency fluctuations on his home continent.

The owner of the biggest cement company in sub-Saharan Africa plans to use the base and an existing one in London to become more global after the completion of a $12 billion, 650,000 barrel-a-day refinery currently under construction in Nigeria.

Speaking at David Rubenstein Show, he said:

In Africa, you know we have issues of devaluation, so we want to really preserve some of the family’s wealth. 

The Lagos based Kano businessman became $4.3 billion richer in 2019 as his fortune continued to grow on the back of investments in cement, flour and sugar.


With a net worth of about $15 billion, he is ranked the 95th wealthiest man in the world, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

His conglomerate, Dangote Industries, includes the Lagos-listed Dangote Cement Plc and four other publicly traded companies under the Dangote umbrella that account for more than a fifth of the value of the Nigerian stock exchange.
