Africa’s richest man, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, has identified a healthy society as key to moving Nigeria forward.

Dangote, who spoke at the Summit of the Private Sector Health Alliance while inaugurating the Nigeria Health Innovation Market, NHIM, Steering Committee, yesterday called for viable partnerships between the Nigerian private sector and the Federal government to enable the country
attain its Millennium Development Goals, MDGs.

“There is no way we can progress without a healthy society even when
you look at it from the business point of view. Having a very healthy society is very important and key for us to be able to move the country forward.

“I can see no reason why we cannot meet the targets of the MDGs, so the private sector must team up and partner with government so that we
can deliver on our MDGs,” he remarked.

The Nigerian business mogul admonished the private sector saying; “It is really very important for the private sector to continue collaborating with the Federal government. I see no reason why we sit down comfortably in our air-conditioned offices and aesthetic homes while we are losing about
800 lives annually. It is unacceptable.

“The rule of justice will catch up with us if we fail to act. Let’s stop too much talking and begin to deliver. No matter what is the innovation, unless there is commitment, we will not be able to
deliver.

Dangote also stated that government needed to show willingness and readiness to get support so as to achieve its set goals.

“It is not that people are not trying but we need to be encouraged,” he said.
