Aliko Dangote is a household name as long as Nigeria is concerned, he was announced the richest man in Nigeria, subsequently in Africa and most recently, the richest black man on earth.
Even at this, the Dantata family view him as a boy in terms of riches. Closely followed by the kano Emirate, in particular, the Emire himself HRH Ado Bayaro. The Abacha family (Mohammed Abacha) is another rich dude with undisclosed amount of wealth, which even the almajiri on the street recognises.
These individuals are only but few dudes in kano state who are wealthy beyound there own imagination, yet, hundreds of thousands of there immediate and far neighbours sleep in hunger and in abject poverty.
If these people were Rochas Okorocha of Imo state or Gani Fawehinmi of blessed memory, with there wealth, Kano would have been the dream land of every Nigerian. But unfortunately, eventhough they claimed to love kano so much, they have done little or nothing to touch the lives of kano people let alone the future of the unborn child.
They don’t care about the education of the Kano child, unlike Chibuike Amechi of Rivers who with the resources he controls, has given new look to education. Rochas Okorocha was never a Governor when he biult schools across the six geopolitical zones of this country. Yet these so called richest people are doing virtually nothing to put there state in the right direction let alone the country.
No qualitative Education, No more groundnut pyramid, No good health care delivery, no pipe born water, dead and continuing decaying Industries, high unemployment rate etc. Yet it’s the home to the Richest black man on planet Earth. What a shame. May ALLAH GOD bless NIGERIA. @yusufamoke
