The President, Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote, has been named among the 50 world’s most influential personalities by Bloomberg, the renowned United States-based news media with bias for business and financial news reporting.

The personalities chosen by the Bloomberg Market consisted of CEOs, world leaders as well as religious leaders. As expected, US President, Barack Obama; German Chancellor, Angela Merkel; and Pope Francis made the list, with Dangote ranked 41st.

According to Bloomberg, those on the list “build companies and assemble fortunes. They run banks, or hope to disrupt them. They shape economies and spread ideas. They manage money and wield the clout that goes with the billions of dollars they invest.”
On Dangote, Bloomberg stated, “Africa’s most successful businessman built his fortune in sugar, textiles and cement in his native Nigeria, where today he’s a political as well as a financial power broker. He’s expanding in other countries and may list his cement company in London.” See full list below:
