DID YOU KNOW (23)? Dangote Jumps 49 Places, Now 67th Richest Human

According to Bloomberg, Mr Aliko Dangote, as at Thursday 05 May 22 is now worth $20.7 billion, making him the 67th wealthiest man alive.

This implies that the 64-year-old Nigerian businessman has now leaped 49 places within 4 months, on the Bloomberg billionaires list.

Majority of Mr Dangote’s fortune is derived from his 86% stake in publicly-traded Dangote Cement Plc.

His Dangote Refinery project located in Lekki, Lagos, is also expected to come on stream later this year, and that will likely shoot him further up the billionaires’ index.
