Mr. Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media & Publicity, has clarified the role of Africa’s richest man, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, in his boss’s re-election bid.
According to the former MD of The Sun Newspapers as well as President, Nigerian Guild of Editors: It has become imperative to further clarify the status of Alhaji Aliko Dangote, named under the sub-head ADVISORY MEMBERS in the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council announced on Friday, December 28, 2018.
Africa’s richest man, not being a card-carrying member of APC, cannot, and is not a member of the PCC. He is also a member of the Peace Committee, and thus cannot be in a partisan campaign council.’
Dangote and his friend, Femi Otedola, also a billionaire businessman, had been trending ever since their names were announced earlier today. Which obviously prompted the above urgent and necessary clarification.
