Billionaire businessmen, Aliko Dangote and Femi Otedola were together in London recently and they had an amazing time. Aliko was honoured by Coventry U.K. Doctorate today in London which was the main reason why he was around.
Yesterday, we spotted the billionaire businessmen and close friends were also spotted at Arsenal/PSG match in London. It is no longer news that Aliko love Arsenal with passion. He has not given up on the plans to buy the team after he was rebuffed by its owners in 2010.
He had earlier announced his intention to buy the club last year. He said he needs to wait for his business prospects to improve and his investments in gas pipelines and an oil refinery to play out before making the acquisition.
“There’s no doubt” he’ll buy Arsenal and “it’s not a problem” of money.Maybe in three to four years. The issue is that we have more challenging headwinds. I need to get those out the way first and start having tailwinds. Then I’ll focus on this,” Dangote added.
