According to a statement, the group declared its continuous investments in critical sectors of the economy to create employment and promote decent jobs were irrevocable.
Speaking at the induction of a new batch of graduate trainees, the President of Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote, noted that the company had transformed from being a commodity trading company to manufacturing in the quest to contribute to the industrial development of the country, thus repositioning Nigeria in the African industrial landscape.
“The mission of the group is to touch the people’s lives by providing their basic needs and this could only be fulfilled through the manufacturing of goods that could meet the people’s needs.
"Hence, the massive investments in various sectors of the economy,” he said.
According to Dangote, manufacturing, as a means of meeting people’s needs, is a powerful tool for reducing poverty by creating jobs.
