I am one of the many people out there who have been wondering why Nigerian billionaire Aliko Dangote has not shown interest in any political position. Adducing reasons for not actively participating in politics,The CEO of Dangote Group stressed that business and politics should never be mixed.

Speaking to newsmen during a condolence visit to the Awolowo family over the death of Mrs Hannah Awolowo (HID) at the family’s residence in

Ikenne-Remo, Ogun State, the richest man in Africa said both ventures require different skills.

“I can’t be in politics because they say when you want to clap you need two hands. If all of us in business go into politics then who is going to create the jobs?

“We are in the private sector so we should be creating jobs. Government should be creating good policies and also ensuring that we are not taking advantage of the poor.

“They are doing what they know how to do best and we are also doing what we know how to do best. Each is a master in its own terrain.” He explained.
The business mogul is also certain that the economy will soon regain it’s stability.

“During the oil boom, when a barrel of oil sold above 100 dollars, there were too many leakages which the Federal Government is now trying to resolve by plugging them. When this is effectively achieved, I believe the economy will begin to regain its stability.‎
