A Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigerian, Senator Ben Bruce on Thursday said that Africa’s richest man and founder of Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote is far more influential and powerful than Nigeria President Muhammadu Buhari.
The lawmaker in a tweet noted that power does not only comes from political, adding that Nigeria politicians need a paradigm shift. Ben Bruce urged politicians to rather hold on to honour instead of power.
Why do politicians think power only comes from political offices? Buhari isn’t the most powerful Nigerian. @AlikoDangote is far more influential and powerful than him. Our politicians need a paradigm shift. Don’t hold on to power. Hold on to honour and power will ever follow you.
