Nigerian billionaire Aliko Dangote, also known as Africa’s richest man, on Saturday revealed that he once withdrew 10 million dollars in cash just to look at it to prove to himself that he was that he was really rich, and his wealth is not just figures on paper.
This happened at the Mo Ibrahim forum Abidjan , while he was having a talk with the convener, Ibrahim.
One day Aliko Dangote went to a bank, and that time there were no restrictions and he wrote a cheque and cashed 10 milllion dollars and took it home for himself.
Aliko Dangote continued by saying he put the money in the boot of his vehicle and went home. He opened it and looked at the 10 million dollars and said “okay fine now I believe I have money”.
Upon hearing what Aliko Dangote said, the audience laughed at the comment.
Aliko Dangote added that he took the 10 million dollars cash back to the bank the next day, after which the audience laughed again.
When asked by Ibrahim how much money does Aliko Dangote have on himself at that moment, he commented that he doesn’t even have a dollar.
