It is very rare to hear anyone complain about Dangote’s product, I personally I have not come across anyone saying something bad about any of Dangote’s product. I tell you this particular virtue as a way of making your business to jack up as fast as anything. I tell you many ruin their business with the inability to be consistency with producing quality goods. This is one thing that this man has mastered and has kept him above in every market.

Seeing the engagement of this man into all sector he finds any opportunity makes you to see that the spirit of business that dwells inside of him, I am very sure what eat thinks is business, he sleeps business and dream business that is the part he has chosen and he is well acquainted with it.
- In an interview with this particular man Aliko Dangote, he said the biggest move for him in the business sector is moving from the position of being a trader to a manufacturer. If you desire to really make progress in this business sector be willing to go farther from being just a trader to a manufacturer.
- Be independent. This is one of the virtue anyone willing to go very far in the business sector should possess, looking at it very well the early begin of this man who became a global icon now, even though he had the privilege to be born from a wealthy family he still stand on his own and still find a way to make waves in every sector in found himself, it is important to have an independent spirit. Am very sure when this man started at that time and claiming that he wants to be the richest black man then independently, there will be a lot of people that will be looking at him as though he is only joking, but his success is very obvious today. I tell no one emerge without paying a price, there is always a place of sacrifice.
