The cordiality and closeness of the two business tycoons has never been a subject of discussion and they keep on cushioning the relationship even outside business.
The two never want to be far from each other for any reason because of the seeming Siamese bond between them. It may no longer be news now that the The Forte Oil, Zenon and Geregu Power Plc. boss, Femi Otedola has been vacationing abroad for over a month now.
The Lagos state-born Femi Otedola and his bosom friend, Kano state-born billionaire industrialist and Africa’s Forbes-rated richest man, Aliko Dangote were recently spotted in the ancient rich city of Monaco, France having the best of time and perhaps discussing more business opportunities that are beckoning.
That was few days ago, but before one could say Jack Robinson, Dangote was back in Nigeria at his desk in office doing what he knows how to do best.
He apparently went to share in the good times his pal was having abroad vacationing, which his friend, Otedola also reciprocates when he also goes holidaying.
But be that as it may, another feather was recently added to Dangote’s already full cap, as he was named World’s 6th Most Charitable Person by Richtopia, a digital periodical that covers business, economics, and financial news, based in the United Kingdom.
Aside Dangote, Tony Elumelu, chairman of United Bank for Africa was also included on the list as the 11th and these two were the only Nigerians on the list.
