Nigeria is Africa’s top oil producer, yet it’s in the middle of a fuel crisis. The missing link: oil refineries. To address this massive disconnect, billionaire businessman Aliko Dangote is building an oil refinery right outside Lagos.
He’s a Nigerian billionaire, who owns the Dangote Group, which has interests in commodities.
His company operates in Nigeria and other African countries.
As of January 2015, he had an estimated net worth of US$18.6 billion.
