ALIKO DANGOTE REVEALS WHAT GIVES HIM SLEEPLESS NIGHTS.

President of the Dangote Group, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, has revealed that the success or failure of any of his businesses does not bother him or make him lose sleep like the rate of unemployed Nigerian youths.He stated that unemployment gives him sleepless nights, as he posited that it’s the collective responsibility of both the government and entrepreneurs to create jobs for the teeming Nigerian youths as a way of solving the restiveness and agitations that the nation is experiencing from different geo-political zones.According to him, population growth is not abating as population and poverty go together especially in the northern part of the country where limitless procreation is recorded.He said: “Since 1978, when I came to Lagos, government has been talking about diversification of the economy which has not happened up till now.

It is also sad that nobody is challenging anybody about how many jobs he or she has created.“In reality though, it is not solely government duty to provide jobs. It is also the duty of entrepreneurs, but government at all levels must provide the enabling environment. When there is no jobs, people get frustrated, and I can tell you that the Boko Haram insurgency is a product of frustration. The way to go is diversification. Nigeria should diversify its economy, and take crude oil as icing on the cake.”He acknowledged the fact that some individuals had invested in the past but failed with their businesses owing to inconsistencies in government policies and power challenge.

Dangote after enumerating many projects his company has embarked on to mitigate some of these hurdles in the country added that his company is determined to transform and diversify the Nigerian economy. Dangote said, it also necessary to be closer to those in government in order to always exchange ideas on how to improve the economy.
On the quit notice order given to Igbo people in the North by a coalition of northern youths, Dangote said it is a topic not worth discussing, and however, urged the people to stop talking about it. According to him, “Unknown people are talking about Igbo leaving the North, and we are joining them to talk about it. Why are we talking about it? It shouldn’t be discussed at all. Those saying it are just seeking relevance.”
