Africa’s richest man Aliko Dangote shelved plans to extend his vast business empire to Kenya, after being put off by top decision makers in the country whom he has described as “more corrupt than Nigerians.”
Celebrated media personality Jeff Koinange recently made the revelation from a private conversation he had with the Nigerian billionaire businessman.
Speaking on his breakfast show on local FM station, Koinange shared details of his chat with Dangote whom he meet when attended the tycoon’s daughter’s wedding in Nigeria last month.
“I asked him, ‘Al Hajj when are you coming back to Kenya?’ and he said ‘Jeff, there are people in that place (Kenya) who put greed and personal interest ahead of national interest. I didn’t think Kenya would be more corrupt that Nigeria.'” Koinange narrated on air. bridesmaid
