Nigeria: Dantata Is Dead

Abdullahi Sanusi Dantata, the chairman of Dantata & Sawoe Construction Company, is dead. He died on Tuesday in a German hospital.

Alhaji Dantata was an uncle to business mogul Dr. Aliko Dangote.

He was rushed to the German hospital from Nigeria after he fell ill about a week ago.

In a statement last night by the Director of Communication and Strategy in the Kano State Government House, Alhaji Baba Dantiye, Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso said Alhaji Dantata would be sorely missed because of his contribution to the economic development of the nation.

His remains will be flown from Germany to his hometown of Kano, Nigeria on Wednesday for burial according to Islamic rites.
