Aliko Dangote, the richest man in Africa, has revealed that he will donate all his money to charities before he dies. The businessman made this revelation during his speech at the 2019 Golden Gala of the Florence Otedola Cuppy Foundation in Abuja.
At the event organized by the Cuppy Foundation to raise funds for Save the Children, a UK-based charity for 100 years, of which Mr. Dangote, the current richest black man donated 100 million Naira.
Dangote disclosed on his statement that: “I believe we have made more Nigerians have a big heart to give back to the needy. Nigeria has been good to us. Despite our many needs, we must also contribute and do our part. We should not wait for the government to do everything. The government has a lot of challenges to face, just like we have ours.”
“I think we must always give back. A proverb says that to whom much has been given, much will be asked. Philanthropy in Nigeria is not new. But people find it very difficult to give money. But I think the more you give, the more God blesses you and enriches you.”
“For me, one thing I keep saying is that I will give all my money before I die. We are all called to die one day.”
