Nigerian business tycoon, Aliko Dangote, overtook two Russians, one Chinese and an Indian on the billionaires’ list on Monday, after making N460bn in a day.
The Chief Executive Officer of Dangote Group made the profit following increased demand for Dangote Cement, beating his fellow billionaires by earning about $100 million.
He maintains a majority share at his Cement company, following the company’s announcement of a significant share buyback two weeks ago.
According to Bloomberg Billionaire Index, Dangote remains Africa’s richest man, a feat he has maintained for 12 years in a row.
