Alhaji Aliko Dangote, says the claim that he was complicit as his company’s trucks were being used to transport men and women from the Northern part of Nigeria to the South is not true.
He made the disclaimer in a letter addressed to the President General of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Dr, John Nwodo, dated May 27. The letter was titled, “Allegation of illegal haulage against Dangote Industries Ltd,’ and was signed by Anthony Chiejina, Group Chief Communications Officer of Dangote Group..
In the letter, Dangote, Africa’s richest man said trucks belonging to the company are permitted to transport only cement, limestone, high grade gypsum, sugar, salt, seasoning and branded sacks/bags and urged Ohanaeze and the general public to report any Dangote truck driver involved in such with evidence.
The company urged citizens to forward details such as truck type, content, colour, plate number, location and if possible, photographs to the following numbers, 08131768000, 08131771111, 08131770999 and 08131771000.
