Have you ever wondered who really calls the shots in Nigeria? Is it the wealthy business tycoon, Dangote, or the President?

Recently, many people online are saying that Aliko Dangote, the billionaire businessman, is the ‘Owner of Nigeria‘ because Google’s search algorithm suggests his Wikipedia profile when people search for ‘Who is the owner of Nigeria.

However, based on’s analysis, it seems that Google’s search algorithm has been consistently promoting information that might be inaccurate or, in cases where there’s no relevant article, it displays a random profile from Wikipedia

Even up to the time we conducted our fact-check on titled ‘Fact Check: Is Dangote Owner of Nigeria? Here’s The Truth,’ some Nigerian social media users searched for “The owner of Nigeria” on Google, and the search engine displayed Aliko Dangote’s profile from Wikipedia as the result. This led to misinformation and propaganda spreading on Twitter.

Many people shared screenshots of the Google search result on Twitter, encouraging others to do the same for confirmation. This led to many individuals conducting the same search and sharing their findings across various social media platforms. As a result, many people came to believe that Aliko Dangote, the wealthiest man in Africa, owns Nigeria, a country with a population of over 220 million.

However, there’s no legal or constitutional foundation supporting the claim that Aliko Dangote is the owner of Nigeria.

When MANDYNEWS.COM conducted the same search for ‘Who is the owner of Nigeria’ on Google, the search result displayed Aliko Dangote.

However, when similar searches were done for other countries, the results displayed the respective billionaires as the owners. For instance, Jack Ma was shown as the owner of China.

This isn’t the first time Google’s search algorithm has spread false information. Similar errors have occurred in the past, such as when it suggested that Agbani Darego was the ugliest Nigerian woman.

These incidents happen because Google simply retrieves and displays articles already available on the internet. When it can’t find relevant articles for a specific query, it often resorts to displaying random names from Wikipedia.

So who is the owner of Nigeria?

Let’s dig into the truth behind this question and uncover what’s really going on.

Understanding Ownership in Nigeria
In Nigeria, ownership is not always clear. It’s not only about who has the most money or has the most powerful political position. Ownership can be complicated, combining commercial interests, political power, and societal influence.

The Influence of Dangote
Aliko Dangote, Africa’s richest man, wields significant economic power in Nigeria. His conglomerate, Dangote Group, spans multiple industries, including cement, sugar, and telecommunications. But does this mean he owns Nigeria? Not necessarily.

The Role of the President
On the other hand, the President of Nigeria holds the highest political office in the country. While the President has authority over government affairs, including policy-making and governance, their power is limited by checks and balances within the political system.

The Truth Revealed
So, who really owns Nigeria? The truth is, no single individual or entity can claim ownership of an entire country. Nigeria belongs to its people – the millions of citizens who call it home, work hard every day, and contribute to its progress and development.

While Dangote and the President have considerable power in Nigeria, they are only one aspect of a much bigger picture. Nigeria’s ownership is divided among its diverse people, with each playing a role in creating the country’s present and future.

So, the next time someone asks, “Who owns Nigeria?” remember that the true owners are the Nigerian people themselves.
