Billionaire Aliko Dangote recently hosted King of Iwo, Osun State, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi.
The meeting held at the invitation of the chairman of Dangote Group.
The venue was the Lagos abode of one of Africa’s richest. Checks revealed that the self-styled Emperor of Iwo actually publicized the meeting claiming need to develop his town.
The meeting has upped Dangote’s investment portfolio in the southwest with moves to increase it and this has made him a major stakeholder in the region.
Obviously, for a major economic player rapidly increasing his investment in the region, these are unwelcome signals, hence the special meeting aptly sweetened talks of development for Iwo and the region in general
