Africa’s richest man and Nigerian billionaire, Aliko Dangote has said that he has no intention to run for political office because business and politics should never be mixed.
Dangote, the Chairman of Dangote Group, made this known while speaking with newsmen during a condolence visit to the Awolowo family over the death of Mrs Hannah Awolowo (HID) at the family’s residence in Ikenne-Remo, Ogun.
The business mogul said that the set of skills required to become successful in business differed from those of politics.
“I can’t be in politics because they say when you want to clap you need two hands.
“If all of us in business go into politics then who is going to create the jobs?
“We are in the private sector so we should be creating jobs. Government should be creating good policies and also ensuring that we are not taking advantage of the poor.
“They are doing what they know how to do best and we are also doing what we know how to do best. Each is a master in its own terrain,” Dangote said.
