President of Dangote Group, Alhaji Aliko Dangote has said that he and family members were told that his younger brother, Alhaji Sani Dangote was going to die in an hour.
“The most painful thing is when you are told that your brother will be passing on in about an hour.
“And you stand by watching as the machine is going down until it stopped working. It was very tormenting.”
Dangote spoke today, November 19 when the national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu paid him a condolence visit in Kano.
Aliko Dangote said bitterly: ” having a brother like him; once you lose him it is really very painful. He died in front of myself, our mother and all his children.”
“We have always known that when there is life there is death. We, as Muslims, don’t know who is next and it can be today, tomorrow or even now.
“That is why it is good to be good, so that when you get there you can bid for whatever you were asked to do on earth.
“Your excellency, you are our host because you are the governor of all of us and we really thank you for taking almost the whole week struggling with the crowds, its not easy.
“I thank you all for all your prayers and your support.
“This will actually help us to reduce the pain that we are going through.”
Sani Dangote, who was the Vice President of Dangote Group died recently and was buried in Kano on Thursday.
