Twitter users offer to marry Dangote

Twitter users are offering their hand in marriage to Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, after the UK-based Financial Times newspaper reported that he is on the look-out for a wife.

“I’m not getting younger. Sixty years is no joke… but it doesn’t make sense to go out and get somebody if you don’t have the time,” Dangote told the newspaper.

“Right now, things are really, really very busy, because we have the refinery, we have the petrochemicals, we have the fertiliser, we have the gas pipeline. I need to calm down a bit.”/BBC
