Dangote made this promise through the company’s General Manager, Corporate Communications, Mr. Sunday Esan while speaking during the Children Segment of the on-going Calabar Carnival in Cross River State.

Dangote said the company had been sponsoring the children segment of the carnival for some time now, adding that the Dangote Group also runs an academy targeted at youth development. And the reason is that the youths, if properly guided and mentored are the foundation for Nigeria’s future growth.

The wife of the governor, Mrs. Obioma Imoke, who represented the Governor at the cutting of tape to declare the Calabar Children carnival open, said Dangote, over the years, had been consistent in giving back to the society, empowering the youth and serving as a good and positive role model to the youth.

“Aliko Dangote has been a good and positive role model to our youths. He has shown enormous interest in youth development and empowerment and we wish other notable Nigerians can take a cue from him and use their organisations to support the youth, who are obviously the leaders of tomorrow.”

She stated that the state government was committed to policies and programmes that would assist the children and youths to realize their potential.
