On Saturday, Vice President Kashim Shettima paid a courtesy visitation to Alhaji Aminu Dantata, the brain behind flourishing enterprises (Dantata Town Developers Limited, Express Petroleum & Gas Company Limited, among others) and one of the organizers of Jaiz Bank in Nigeria.

The 92-year-old Kano based business mogul, philanthropist and senior politician is the granduncle of Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote.

Shettima described him as a successful example whose business style remains a model for new and growing businesses in Nigeria.

“He is not just one of a refined breed of patriots, but a model for many generations,” the VP said.
