Visibly emotional, Dangote promised to continue to forge ahead with the battle to diversify the economy and spread prosperity.

“Very soon, we will start having our Annual General Meeting (AGM) in stadium, not halls, due to the large shareholders we will be targeting. We will be having up to two million shareholders in the next 10 years,” Dangote said.

The four companies account for N2.923 trillion at the close of the market, representing one-third of the N8.87 trillion total market capitalisation of quoted equities. 

Dangote Cement is the largest listed company, with market value of N2.805 trillion, 31.6 per cent of total equities value of N8.867 trillion.
