President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday extended his birthday wishes to Alhaji Aminu Dantata who clocked 88 years.
Okay Nigeria News understands that the president in a statement signed by his senior special assistant, Garba Shehu, extolled Alhaji Aminu’s role as a public officer, business and community leader, who engineered an eco-system that fostered creativity of young minds in business by generously supporting innovations, long before governments got interested in promoting start-ups.
“He was acutely aware that unless our communities promoted education and business enterprise, the country cannot realise its potential and compete with other emerging economies,” President Buhari said.
“It was Alhaji Aminu Dantata’s exemplary leadership of the Kano business community that set the foundations for a prosperous and inclusive Kano city.”
“I pray for his longer and healthier life,” the President added.
