Aliko Dangote, Africa’s wealthiest man and Nigerian philanthropist, has also redeemed his pledge of $50,000 to the Super Eagles.
Recall that at the just-concluded 2019 African Cup of Nations in Egypt, Dangote and his billionaire friend Femi Otedola pledged $75,000 together for every goal scored by the Super Eagles of Nigeria in the knockout stage of the tournament.
Yesterday, Otedola redeemed his pledge of $25000 per goal to representatives of the Super Eagles. The representatives also made a visit to Olakunle Alake, GMD of Dangote Group who presented them with a cheque of $50,000 of behalf of Aliko Dangote.
‘Business tycoon Aliko Dangote today in Lagos redeemed his pledge of $50,000 to the @NGSuperEagles for their one goal against Algeria in AFCON 2019 semi-final.
