The management of the Pan-African Conglomerate Dangote Industries Limited has said that ongoing investments in vital economic areas to support employment and the creation of decent jobs are irrevocable. As a result, a new batch of graduate trainees has been accepted into the programme.
Aliko Dangote, the president of the Dangote Group, spoke to the trainees yesterday. He described how the company transitioned from trading in commodities to manufacturing in order to support the industrial development of the nation and reposition Nigeria in the industrial landscape of Africa.
He explained that the Group’s goal is to improve people’s lives by meeting their basic requirements, and that this goal can only be achieved through manufacturing the items necessary to do so, which explains the significant investments made in numerous economic sectors.
He claims that manufacturing products to meet the needs of the public also leads to the creation of jobs because manufacturing is one of the most effective means of rescuing people from poverty by providing them with gainful employment. As a result, the graduate trainee programme was established, of which they are the beneficiaries.
He continued by saying that his group had added three new company portfolios in the fields of fertiliser, petrochemicals, and refineries, totaling over $20 billion, in an effort to address the needs of the population by creating a lot of jobs.
According to him, the investments will also provide roughly $16 billion in foreign cash for the nation and a total of 250,000 jobs to assist in decrease youth unemployment.
He emphasised the organization’s key principles of leadership, excellence, entrepreneurship, and customer service and advised the new trainees to have great dreams and be passionate about their work.
The Group Managing Director of Dangote Industries Limited, Kunle Alake, also spoke to the trainees. He said that Dangote Group is passionate about its vision and mission and urged the trainees to demonstrate the right attitude towards work when they are deployed in order to contribute to the ongoing success of the business and have a fulfilling career.
He advised them to take advantage of the chance presented to them by being chosen from among the hundreds of applicants for the training as he walked them through the Group’s numerous portfolios and to be diligent in whatever they do.
Nglan Niat, Group Chief Human Resources Officer for Dangote Industries Limited, asked the trainees to think of themselves as lucky to have made it through the rigorous selection process and emerged victorious in her presentation. She described their selection as a great opportunity because they will have a variety of Business Units to choose from when they are ready for deployment.
