Otedola, who last year unsettled the market through his purchase of Transcorp Group shares, said Dangote Cement’s strong corporate governance and impressive environmental, social, and corporate governance compliance track record make it an ideal investment choice.

Dangote Cement is currently worth N9.1 trillion and traded at N592.5 on Monday.

Last Wednesday, Otedola visited the Dangote refinery in Lagos following the commencement of production in the facility.
