Just over 20 years ago the Nigerian corporate landscape was dominated by companies with strong foreign affiliations. Corporate Giants like Nestle, Guinness, Nigerian Breweries, Leventis, PZ, Pocter and Gamble etc were household names everyone could identify with. Even though these companies were largely owned by Nigerians (following the indigenization policies of the 70’s) their foreign counterparts still retained strong managerial influence. A lot has however changed in the last two decades as sweeping economic reforms by successive governments created a platform for indigenously owned Nigerian Companies to emerge. One of such Nigerian companies is the Dangote Group, owners of Dangote Cement, Dangote Sugar, Dangote Flour mills etc. The company founded by Africa’s foremost billionaire Aliko Dangote has grown in leaps and bounds over the last decade owning businesses that span across many consumption needs of Nigerians, sometimes having a near market monopoly in some cases.
