Dangote, whose company controls about 30% of market capitalisation, stepped down ahead of the end of a three-year tenure, which was supposed to end by 2015, to focus on his company’s expansion drive in Africa.

An alumnus of Harvard Business School’s Executive Management Programme, Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede was the first vice-president of the council.

The national council also elected Abimbola Ogunbanjo and A. B Mahmoud as the first and second vice-presidents respectively.
