REFINERY IN 2017

Dangote says his refinery, which would refine 650,000 barrels per day, would be among the biggest on the planet.

"We didn't generally understand that we would require very nearly 70 million cubic meters of sand. Be that as it may, we are making up for lost time, and I'm certain we'll have the capacity to convey it by the last quarter of 2017.

"We have very flopped in conveying any venture. We generally convey our activities on time and at cost. In the event that we hadn't conveyed our tasks on time, that would be something. We will convey, by the finesse of God."

LIFETIME PROJECT

To Dangote, the refinery is his lifetime venture and he is supporting it up with his own life to ensure it is conveyed.

"We are utilizing our own particular cash. This is my lifetime extend. I need to back it up with my own particular life to ensure it is conveyed. I realize that, yes, it's actual, many people have endeavored to convey on refineries before, for the most part governments. They proved unable."

HE DOESN'T DO SMALL THINGS

By 2025, Dangote says he would have speculations worth $50 billion in the US and Europe.

"Starting in 2020, 60% of our future speculations will be outside Africa, so we can have an adjust. We are taking a gander at petrochemicals yet can likewise put resources into different organizations.

"Suppose that by 2025, I'm taking a gander at between $20 billion and $50 billion. Mind you, we don't do little things."

LEARNT FROM THE MEN WHO BUILT AMERICA

"I never stress over being excessively intense. In business it's great to be forceful, however with a human face.

"I thought at first I was truly forceful until the point when I watched this show, The Men Who Built America. I understood that really they were substantially bolder than us. Somebody like Vanderbilt, he assembled 50,000 miles of rail! That is an exceptionally intense move. That is the reason anything we do, we don't do it little. On the off chance that there's any person who has done this similarly, I am equivalent to the assignment to do likewise. I really have a sign around my work area that says, 'Nothing is outlandish'."

NO INTEREST IN TELECOMS

Aliko Dangote says he has no enthusiasm for the telecoms business, his reason being that he is late to the gathering.

"When I take a gander at telecom, for example, I believe that would be exceptionally intense for us. We are somewhat late. A few players have been in this market for a long time as of now. It is extremely unlikely you can go and bounce over some individual following 17 years of their diligent work. So I think we would pass with regards to telecom today."

HE WISHES HE INVESTED IN TECHNOLOGY

Dangote says he'd have wanted to put resources into tech, particularly in light of the fact that organizations in that industry get greater valuations than enterprises like agribusiness.

"Take a gander at the US, the way the tech organizations are getting monstrous. It's as yet nothing contrasted with the GEs, yet those don't get that sort of valuation. I wish that we'd entered tech, however our focus has dependably been in Africa."

Arsenal football club ON THE WISH-LIST

Something else on the list of things to get of the 60-year-old businessperson is to purchase Arsenal football club.

"I would prefer not to follow Arsenal until the point when I convey the refinery. When I convey, I will follow Arsenal.

"I don't change clubs. Notwithstanding when Arsenal isn't doing great despite everything I stick by them. It's an incredible group, well-run. It could be run better, so I will be there. I will hold up. Regardless of the possibility that things change I will take it and have the effect going ahead."

NOT INTERESTED IN POLITICS

"I'm not intrigued. There's a considerable amount we can do from the business side. I appreciate a ton of what I am doing, and I likewise cherish my flexibility—and I have very little. The little I have, legislative issues would take away. I am not prepared to surrender that. There are agents who are occupied with governmental issues. I'm not one of them."

Uprightness IS HARD TO COME BY

At the point when asked of the human defect that disappoints him the most in business, Dangote says it's respectability.

"In Africa, you regularly need to know who you're managing. You need to ensure you're managing extremely legitimate individuals who have respectability—that is the reason we have so couple of associations. Dangote itself has a lot of migraines to deal with."

Inclines toward MAKING MONEY TO SPENDING IT

In Dangote's words, he doesn't prefer to discard cash and has no home outside Nigeria. He loves a basic and calm life.

"I'm not a man who just likes to discard cash. I spend more cash on beneficent things than myself. I really don't have any home outside Nigeria. I remain in lodgings. Calm. Basic. My life is not exceptionally rich, and I really get extremely humiliated in the event that I attempt to demonstrate that I have cash.

"In Lagos, I drive myself around on ends of the week. I request that my driver go rest, and after that I drive myself around. Regardless I visit my typical companions I grew up with. My home is open 24 hours every day for them. I blend with everyone. That is the best way to become acquainted with what's happening."
