Investments: Union leaders seek special recognition for Dangote
The global organised labour under the aegis of African Industrial Global Union has commended the president of Dangote Group, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, for his investment patriotism in Africa.
The body, at a meeting in Lagos, called for special recognition for the African entrepreneur describing him as a success story from the African soil for which African countries must be proud of.
Speaking at a network meeting on unionisation in Dangote Group, organised by the Industrial Global Union Africa Region in Lagos, union leaders one after the other said Dangote had offered relief to Africa from the negative narratives the western countries latched on to discredit the continent and its people.
Regional Secretary, Sub- Sahara Africa, Fabian Nkomo, said the body cherished the business acumen of Dangote and would like to work closely with him so that as he creates jobs, the union could also partner to ensure job quality is maintained.
The Africa Regional chairman of the Industrial Global Union, Issa Aremu, who is also the General Secretary of Textile Workers Union commended Aliko Dangote for leading industrialisation on the African continent.
