Asked by the host, why that is the case, Dangote says he does not even know why, unless the president of the country is asked.

He added that it was not an issue of pricing but not been allowed to even enter the country with his cement although Nigeria shares a border with Benin and has one of his factories not far away from Benin.

Although Benin is a member of ECOWAS and has agreed to policies of ECOWAS that states that member states should be allowed to trade freely without restrictions, its obvious implementation has become an issue.
