Our dealers also are very good people and we are rest assured that none of them would be able to take up the price of any product,’ Dangote stated.

A major dealer of Dangote products in Nigeria, Salisu Sambajo, who attended the briefing, stressed that there had never been a time when the Dangote group increased the prices of their products in any part of the country during Ramadan.

The price of every bag of sugar we sell is N18,500 only. Therefore, whenever you find out that a kobo is added to that, it is from the retailers,’ the dealer explained.

‘These people buy goods from us, they pay for transport, tax and many – so when they add some amount on it, it is not Dangote that added it… we cannot force them not to,’ Sambajo said.

The Chairman of the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission (PCACC), Muhuyi Magaji Rimingado, thanked Dangote for taking measures to ensure that his products were sufficiently available in the markets and are affordable for consumers during Ramadan.
