Former President Jonathan has listed as one of his
government’s achievement, the emergence of a Nigerian,
Aliko Dangote as Africa’s Richest Man. Jonathan stated
this while speaking to Friends of Africa Coalition at the
office of the Mayor of the City of Newark in New Jersey on
Thursday April 21
“I inherited a Nigeria in which the trains were not
working, and handed over a Nigeria in which
citizens can safely travel by trains again. I inherited
a Nigeria that was a net importer of cement, and
handed over a Nigeria that is a net exporter of
cement.
In 2009 the richest Nigerian was the 5th richest man
in Africa but I handed over a Nigeria that produced
the richest man in Africa. These are but a few of the
parameters that illustrate some of the economic
transformations we engineered during my term in
office. This was made possible by the fact that
there was a stable political leadership in Nigeria
that did not have to pander to any other
constituency except the electorate who brought me
to power. And these actions have a contagious
effect.”
