Nigerian State Renames University After Richest African Man Aliko Dangote

Nigerian State Renames University After Richest African Man Aliko Dangote

Nigerian Kano State has renamed Kano University of Science and Technology after Nigerian billionaire Aliko Dangote, who is Africa’s richest man.

Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of Kano State, renamed the university after the leading businessman over the weekend, stating that the decision was based on recommendations from the university’s visitation panel.

Billionaires Africa reports that the university will be known as Aliko Dangote University of Science and Technology, Wudil.

Muhammad Garba, the state’s commissioner for information, stated that the approval has been forwarded to the Kano State House of Assembly, which will study the relevant laws establishing the university and make any necessary changes.

Previously, former Governor Ibrahim Shekarau renamed the university after Aminu Dantata near the end of his tenure, but when Rabiu Kwankwaso was re-elected governor of the state in 2011, he reversed the directive.

Dangote, chairman of Dangote Group, Africa’s most diversified manufacturing conglomerate, has seen his net worth rise by more than $1.88 billion since the start of the year, from $19.1 billion on Jan. 1 to $21 billion at the time of writing.

The increase in his net worth can be attributed to investor reactions to Dangote Cement’s strong performance in the first quarter of 2021, which drove its share price to an all-time high of N297 ($0.7153) today.

Sometimes it's good to talk about the things we know. Strive is a Zimbabwean. If ever his parents worked or stayed out of the country it was then, I lived next door to strive s father for more than 10years until he passed away. True they once lived in zambia so I heard but they are Zimbabweans. I think most of you guys here kupindula are too idle. You have too much time to imagine, create things and believe them to be true. Sometimes munonyebera nevaivepo.
