Concise News had reported that the conglomerate said its revenue base will hit $30 billion by 2020 — a feat he would have considered impossible 10 years ago.

“Ten years ago, if you mention to me or even if I actually see it in a dream that our company will have a revenue of $3 billion, I would have said it is impossible,” Dangote said during the Africa Investment Forum on Thursday in South Africa.

“But today, by 2020, we would have $30 billion of revenue. Why? Because we have gone into a very bold product.”
