Meanwhile, Dangote, has dismissed media reports that South Africa had overtaken Nigeria as Africa’s biggest economy.
The report which downgraded Nigeria’s economy below that of South Africa, stated that the change in status of both countries was attributed to the appreciation of the rand, South Africa’s currency, and the devaluation of the Nigerian naira.
The report added that the rand has gained more than 16 per cent against the US currency since the start of 2016; while in contrast, Nigeria’s naira has lost more than a third of its value.
But the president of the Dangote Group, insists that Nigeria remains the number one economy in Africa
