I am not interested in politics, Dangote tells PDP

Africa Richest man and billionaire businessman Alhaji Aliko Dangote, has declared that he has no interest in politics, advising that politicians and political parties should leave him alone and stop dropping his name.

The business mogul stated this while reacting to the Daily Times exclusive report that the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) and its leaders are mounting pressures on him to come and contest for the 2019 presidential election on its platform.

Dangote said: “I am not interested in politics and this authoritative. People should stop dropping my name for the 2019  presidency. “This whole thing is an attempt by people who do not like me.

“They are doing all these with a view to put me on a collision course with president Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling party. They are people who are jealous of the successes I have so far recorded in business.”

“Buhari is like a father to me. Nobody should try to set me on a collision course with president Buhari, that will not work. I have high regard and respect for the president.
