Dangote Splashes N130m on Eagles

President/Chief Executive Officer of Dangote Group, Alhaji Aliko Dangote has donated the sum of N130m to the Nigerian national team, the Super Eagles for qualifying for the final of the ongoing 29th African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in South Africa.

The Super Eagles reached the final by trouncing the eagles of Mali by 4gaols to one.

According to a statement from Dangote Group, the gesture is part of Dangote Group’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) to promote and encourage sports development in Nigeria.

“The donation is to acknowledge the exploits of the national team at the AFCON and stimulate them to bring home the coveted trophy,” a part of it read.

 Minister of Sports, Mallam Bolaji Abudllahi, speaking on the donation said Dangote has always demonstrated commitment to Government and people of Nigeria.

“We are happy over the gesture shown to the players and the coaching crew,” he said. “It is an example for other well-meaning Nigerians to follow.”
