Africa's Richest Man, Alhaji Aliko Dangote Shuns Eminent Followers On Twitter.

Barely 72 hours after Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, joined the micro-blogging service, Twitter, thousands of Nigerians at home and in the Diaspora have extended a hand of fellowship to him by subscribing to his tweets. A check through his Twitter page shows that his followers are not limited to ordinary Nigerians who make use of the social service but include serving lawmakers in the National Assembly, past public office holders, children of past Nigerian leaders, as well as top shots in the nation’s entertainment industry.

Some of the high profile Nigerians following Africa’s most powerful man (as declared by Forbes magazine) include a former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu; former Governor of Kwara State, and Senator representing Kwara Central Senatorial District, Bukola Saraki; and Vice-Presidential candidate of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria in the 2011 general elections, Fola Adeola.
Others include a former Chief Executive Officer of the United Bank for Africa, Tony Elumelu; daughter of late military dictator, Sanni Abacha, Gumsu; artistes such as Dare Art Alade, Dr. Sid, Rugged Man, and Weird MC, among many others.
Surprisingly, despite the huge reception he received on Twitter, Dangote has yet to deem it fit to reciprocate the gesture by subscribing to the tweets of any of these Nigerians following him on the social platform.
