Video: I Withdrew $10m Cash Just To Look At It — Dangote

Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, says he once withdrew $10 million just to look at it and prove to himself that he was indeed rich.

Naija News reports that Dangote made this comment at the Mo Ibrahim governance in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, on Saturday, while he was chatting with the convener, Ibrahim.

In the video, which was shared on the YouTube page of the Mo Ibrahim Foundation, the business tycoon said, “The way it is that when you first start business, your target is to make your first million. Fine, I did that.

“After a year or so, I realised that I had much more, and I said ok, fine, all these numbers are just written numbers.

“One day I went to a bank, and at that time, there were no restrictions, and I wrote a cheque and cashed $10m from the bank and put it in the boot of my vehicle, and I went home and I opened it and I looked at $10m and I said ‘now I believe I have money’.”

Dangote added that he returned the money to the bank the next day.
