Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote says he has no interest in participating actively in the Nigerian political scene. According to him, business and politics should never mix.  Dangote said this today while speaking to newsmen during his condolence visit to the Awolowo’s over the death of Chief H.I.D Awolowo.

“I can’t be in politics because they say when you want to clap you need two hands. If all of us in business go into politics then who is going to create the jobs?
We are in the private sector so we should be creating jobs. Government should be creating good policies and also ensuring that we are not taking advantage of the poor. They are doing what they know how to do best and we are also doing what we know how to do best. Each is a master in its own terrain,” he said.
