    Alh Aliko Dangote should go and settle his Apapa cement workers their due terminal benefits instead of the paltry #250k for ten years of service and telling the whole world that he’s paying his workers in dollars. Some of these poor workers are dead while others are suffering from terminal diseases as a result of working in a toxic and highly hazardous environment over the years.
