Aminu Dantata

Business mogul and elder statesman Aminu Dantata visited President Bola Tinubu in Abuja on Tuesday.

Special adviser to the president on information and strategy Bayo Onanuga announced Dantata’s rare appearance at the seat of power in a post on X.

Tinubu bowed in respect as he received Dantata in his office.

Mr Onanuga said, “President Bola Ahmed Tinubu showed trademark respect to Alhaji Aminu Alhassan Dantata, Chairman of Dantata Group of Companies, when the latter visited him in Abuja on Tuesday.”

“Dantata, 93, is the patriarch of the Alhassan Dantata family in Kano,” he added.

In February, Dantata threw his weight behind the call for a parliamentary system of government as a solution to Nigeria’s problems.

Dantata, who rarely comments on politics, gave his opinion when he received a team led by the minority leader of the House of Representatives Kingsley Chinda at his residence in Kano.
