Dangote Reveals He Would Marry Soon...
Aliko Dangote has revealed that he needs a new wife. Aliko who has been married twice and divorced disclosed this to David Piling in a Financial Times interview, Lunch with FT. The 61 years old also says he has not given up on buying Arsenal.
On a new wife, he said;
“I’m not getting younger. Sixty years is no joke. But it doesn’t make sense to go out and get somebody if you don’t have the time. Right now, things are really, really very busy, because we have the refinery, we have the petrochemicals, we have the fertiliser, we have the gas pipeline.”
But he agrees that he needs to “calm down a bit”.
He Fasts once a week;
Dangote told Pilling that he tries to fast at least once a week, adding that “it helps to clean your system”.
On how tough Nigeria is:
Dangote say with his new refinery, he is out to make new enemies, stating that “you can’t just come and remove food from their table and think they’re just going to watch you doing it”.
“They will try all sorts of tricks. This is a very, very tough society. Only the toughest of the tough survive here”.
“I love Arsenal and I will definitely go for it,” he told FT, adding that the club should be worth about $2bn.
Speaking as the owner of the club, Dangote said he would involve himself in rebuilding the team — “chipping in my own advice”.
“When I buy it, I have to bring it up to the expectations of our supporters,” he said, stating that his refinery is priority now.
“Once I have finished with that headache, I will take on football,” he concludes.
