Nigerian multinational industrial conglomerate Dangote Group reiterated its commitment to create more employment opportunities for teeming Nigerians, especially in immediate host communities.

Claiming to be the country’s largest employer of labor, the diverse company said it will continually seek ways to drive innovation and value creation across Africa.

Group Executive Director, Business Operations, Dangote Group, Ms. Hajiya Halima Aliko-Dangote, made it known during the Dangote Special Day at Lagos International Trade Fair 2021 (LITF) on Wednesday in Lagos.

The show is a powerful marketing medium that brings together thousands of buyers and sellers in one place over a period of ten days, from Friday November 5 to Sunday November 14 with the theme Connecting businesses, creating value.

In her contribution, the group’s commercial director, Dangote Industries Limited, represented by Mr. Rabiu Umar, said that the fair would serve as an opportunity to raise awareness of the group’s products such as sugar, salt, tomato paste , noodles, pasta, fertilizer and its 650,000 BPD refinery soon in service.

She said, “Our interest goes beyond the pursuit of profit, to support government in creating jobs, reducing poverty and engaging in unprecedented philanthropy. In carrying them out, we comply with the laws of the country in which we operate.

“With all humility, we can say that apart from government, the Dangote Group is the largest employer of labor in Nigeria.”

Welcoming the efforts of the Dangote Group for economic development across the continent, the President of the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), Ms. Toki Mabogunje, said: “We appreciate the passion of the group’s leadership to bring solutions to problems that governments have been unable to resolve in the areas of food adequacy, housing and energy.

“The group’s operations have created millions of jobs across Africa and have contributed enormously to the GDP of many countries.

The 35th edition of the fair, organized by LCCI, is an initiative to facilitate trade, commerce and investment, as more than 200,000 visitors are expected while around 1,500 exhibitors from 16 countries participate.
