President Muhammadu Buhari had dinner with Africa’s richest man, Alhaji Aliko Dangote and other members of the business community on Thursday night.
The dinner held at the State House in Abuja to break the Ramadan fast.
President Buhari thanked Nigerians for their continuous support to his administration.
He said he was particularly happy with the performance of the agriculture sector in the past two years.
Dangote Foundation had on Wednesday donated 150 patrol cars to the Nigerian police.
The Vice President Yemi Osinbajo who received the cars said the gesture would boost security infrastructure.
“I want to congratulate the Inspector General of Police on this latest donation of 150 cars. I think this is going to be a great boost to our efforts at keeping security all over the country.
“I would also like to call on others, especially major corporate organisations that whatever cooperation and collaboration we can get from them will be greatly appreciated.
“We wish they could follow the very great example that has been set today by Dangote Group and Alhaji Aliko Dangote.”
According to the vice president, besides the positive donation, the government and the people of Nigeria have benefitted greatly from the corporate social responsibility of Dangote Group.
Osinbajo recalled that the group was responsible for the building of 54km Obajana-Kabba Road, several health centres in Benue, Ogun and other parts of the country, as well as schools.
He said government was aware of the micro credit scheme the foundation gave to no fewer than 40,000 citizens, noting that the patrol vehicles were directed at security of the country.
