Over the past 52 weeks, Dangote Cement has yielded an impressive 81.4% return, solidifying its position as Sub-Saharan Africa’s largest cement maker. Otedola’s latest venture into Dangote Cement is reflected in the company’s strong market performance and solidifies the billionaire’s position as a shrewd investor in Nigeria’s dynamic financial landscape.
