Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote disclosed in a live chat with Mo Ibrahim that, he once withdrew $10 million just to be sure he’s really rich.
Dangote who is worth an estimated $14 billion made this revelation this Saturday at the Mo Ibrahim governance weekend which took place in Abidjan.
Dangote said; “The way it is that when you first start business, your target is to make your first million. Fine, I did that.
“After a year or so, I realised that I had much more, and I said ok, fine, all these numbers are just written numbers.
“One day I went to a bank, and at that time, there were no restrictions, and I wrote a cheque and cashed $10m from the bank and put it in the boot of my vehicle, and I went home and I opened it and I looked at $10m and I said ‘now I believe I have money’.”
