Africa’s richest man and President of Dangote group, Aliko Dangote told Bloomberg that he is keen on buying Arsenal football club. He said though his first attempt failed, he has not given up hope of buying the club. He said he has a new strategy that will enable him buy the club at a price the club owners cannot resist.
According to him, ‘I still hope one day at the right price that I will buy the team. I might buy it, not at a ridiculous price but a price that the owners won’t want to resist. I know my strategy.’
Dangote is a fan of Arsenal. He said ‘we have $16bn worth of investments in the next few years. Right now I want to take my own business to a certain level. Once I finish on that trajectory, then maybe an offer will follow. Dangote believes that Arsene Wenger is a good coach but need to change his tactics for the club to move forward.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
