Given its massive investments in Nigeria’s manufacturing sector, Dangote Group has been described as a pillar of this sector in the country and in Africa.
Speaking on the sideline of the just-concluded 49th Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN) in Abuja, the Director-General of the Association, Mr Segun Ajayi-Kadiri, said the Dangote Group is championing Nigeria’s industrialisation.

“The Dangote Group is clearly a leading member of the Manufacturing Association of Nigeria and has been a pillar of support in the fulfilment of our advocacy,” he said.
The DG added: “As chairman of MAN Large Corporations Group, the President of Dangote Industries Limited, Alhaji Aliko Dangote plays a very important and strategic role in our organisation.”
In recognition of its contribution to the manufacturing sector in Nigeria, the Association yesterday recognised the company with an award.
Meanwhile, President of MAN Engr. Mansur Ahmed was also re-elected for the second term as the President of the Association.

Representative of the Dangote Group, Mr. Hashem Ahmed said the company will not rest on its oars, as it would continue to support the government in growing the country’s GDP and creating jobs.
