How To End Boko Haram – Dangote Reveals

Africa’s richest man and President of Dangote Group of Companies, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, has said that the only way to solve the Boko Haram menace is to create jobs.


Speaking in Abuja at the opening plenary session of the ongoing World Economic Forum on Africa, Dangote said if jobs are created for the youths the Boko Haram insurgency that is threatening the oneness of Nigeria as a nation will reduce.

The business magnate while talking about his company’s investment in sugar production in the North-eastern part of Nigeria said that his company was investing in Adamawa State which was inflicted by the Boko Haram insurgency.

“We are investing in sugar production in the North-East, Adamawa in particularly where there is Boko Haram. The only way to solve Boko Haram is to create jobs”, Dangote said.

He added that Africans must learn to trade within, while governments must create enabling environment for businesses.

Since the Boko Haram sect started causing unrest in the country, the government has been looking for a solution to curb their activities and their effort is yet to yield positive results.

Countless innocent citizens have lost their lives to the incessant Boko Haram attacks. In the Month of May alone, the dreaded sect has launched no fewer than 5 attacks both in Nigeria and in neighbouring countries like Cameroon.

The group’s abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls in Borno is one that is still raising worldwide protests. Many countries like the US, China France and others have offered their support to Nigeria in the rescue of the girls who are still missing with no one knowing their whereabout.

President Jonathan has however said that the abduction of the girls will bring an end to insurgency in the country.
