“Africa needs 20 leaders like President Akufo-Addo to develop” – Aliko Dangote

Aliko Dangote has expressed his forthright perspective on the kind of human resources required for Africa’s success.

According to the Nigerian business mogul, Africa requires only twenty such leaders, such as Rwanda’s Paul Kagame, Ivory Coast’s Alassane Ouattara, and Ghana’s President Akufo-Addo.

Aliko Dangote, the continent’s richest man, stated at the Africa Centre for Economic Reform (ACET) seminar that Africa requires visionary leaders to drive the continent’s transformation agenda, and he proposed the aforementioned trio.

“We do not need to have all 54 countries to have visionary leaders. What we need is a maximum of 20 of the likes of President of Ghana, Rwanda, and Cote D’Ivoire,” he said.
