Africa’s richest man and President/CEO of Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote, will write an article in the next edition of YouWiN! Connect, which will be published in five newspapers.

The article, which will focus on “Starting Small”, will be published in six newspapers.

In his article, Dangote wrote: “I have always had a passion for business. As a child, I remember trading in confectioneries amongst my classmates and as I grew older, I gathered business experience working with my uncle.”

The article, which will be published under the “YouWiN! Connect Academy” section, also shared vital success and motivational tips for entrepreneurs who are starting small.

The Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, commended Dangote described his interest and involvement in the enterprise education initiative of the ministry as “a watershed moment” for the programme.

She said, “There’s no better way to help entrepreneurs succeed than to have icons like Dangote share their personal success stories with them through an increasingly valuable platform like YouWiN! Connect. This is why the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration reaffirmed its commitment to the project in its enhanced form.”

She urged other successful entrepreneurs to follow.
