Dangote Laments Over The Difficulty Nigerians Face In Traveling Within Africa

 

Aliko Dangote, Nigerian billionaire and business magnate, spoke out about the difficulty of traveling within Africa as a Nigerian citizen.

 

In an interview, Dangote stated he had just complained to Rwandan President Paul Kagame about the issue.

 

“Even an hour ago, I complained to President Kagame.

“I have to now apply for 35 different visas on my passport. I don’t have the time to go and be dropping my passports in embassies to get visa,” Dangote stated.

 

He contrasted his experience with that of Patrick (the interviewer), who likely wouldn’t require 35 visas on a non-African passport.

 

“You see, the most annoying thing is that, yes, if you are treating everybody the same, then I can understand.

 

“You know, I can assure you, Patrick doesn’t need 35 visas,” he added.

While acknowledging the existence of visa-free travel zones like the one encompassing Uganda, Rwanda, and Kenya, Dangote called for wider adoption.

 

He further urged African leadership to take action saying, “So we Africans will have to do it. If we are waiting for foreigners to come and do it, both the development of Africa, it’s not going to happen.”
