Aliko Dangote CEO of the dangote group of companies was said to have made a whooping donation of about N100,000,000 million Naira to Lagos state government so as to help with the provision of relief materials for victims of the Lagos floods.

During the presentation, which was made in the name of Dangote Cement, Mr Dangote commended Mr Fashola's administration and underlined the fact that the government alone cannot shoulder the responsibility of building the society. He therefore called on Corporate Nigeria to assist the state government.

"I keep saying it that if we had 12 of our governors, that is one-third of our governors like you working so hard, am hundred percent sure Nigeria will change. We do not need too many people to change the country," Mr Dangote said. He also said Mr Fashola's administration instills the confidence and desire to want to pay taxes because the government utilities the tax to the benefit of the society. He even advised Governor Fashola to raise the State's Internal Generated Revenue to ₦50billion monthly before the expiration of his current tenure .

I'm actually happy that he did this but now it remains for the government to actually give the people this money, because we might not hear of it again
