Who is the owner of nigeria?


  • Why Google Says ‘Dangote Is the Owner Of Nigeria?

Numerous claims are circulating on social media that billionaire businessman Aliko Dangote is the ‘Owner of Nigeria’ as a result of his Wikipedia profile being suggested by Google’s search algorithm whenever the question “Who is the owner of Nigeria?” is searched.


It appears that for some time now, Google’s search algorithm has consistently promoted either inaccurate information or, in the absence of a relevant article, a random Wikipedia profile.


On Thursday, however, some Nigerian social media users searched for ” Who is the owner of Nigeria” on Google, and the search engine displayed Aliko Dangote’s Wikipedia profile as a result, resulting in the spread of misinformation and propaganda on Twitter.

Many individuals posted screenshots of the Google search result on Twitter and urged others to do the same in order to verify it. This resulted in many people conducting the same search and sharing the results on various social media platforms. As a result, many people came to believe that Aliko Dangote, the richest man in Africa, owns Nigeria, a country with a population of over 220 million.


Who’s the owner of Nigeria?


Helen Paul, a well-known Nigerian comedian, recently posted how a Google search revealed that Dangote is the owner of Nigeria.

The media personality posted a screenshot of a Google search asking who owns the country on her official Instagram page.

Who is  the owner of Nigeria?


Ejes Gist News Nigeria performed the same Google search for “Who is the owner of Nigeria?” and discovered Aliko Dangote.

Reasons for this misinformation are not implausible. The issue is due to a Google algorithm error.

A key advantage of ChatGPT, the AI bot, is its ability to provide accurate and trustworthy information. In this instance, you would be informed that Aliko Dangote is not Nigeria’s owner. In contrast, Google’s search algorithm may suggest an answer based on inaccurate or misleading data.

This is not the first time Google’s search algorithm has disseminated incorrect information. Similar errors have occurred in the past, such as when Agbani Darego was described as the ugliest Nigerian woman.

These occurrences occurred because Google is merely a search engine that displays previously written articles from the internet. When it is unable to locate a relevant article for a particular query, it frequently displays random names from Wikipedia.

It is essential to note that the rumour circulating on social media that Aliko Dangote is the owner of Nigeria is false.


Nigeria is a sovereign nation governed by the Federal Republic of Nigeria and led by a President. The president is elected through a democratic process by the people. Dangote is a prosperous businessman, but he does not control the nation. The Google search algorithm result that suggests his Wikipedia profile as “the owner of Nigeria” is deceptive because the platform only provides information that has been published on the internet, and if it cannot find relevant information, it displays random names from Wikipedia.

Conclusion;  Nigeria is a sovereign nation and does not have a single owner or individual who controls the country. Nigeria is governed by a democratically elected government that is led by the President, who is currently Muhammadu Buhari.

There are also numerous private individuals and businesses that operate within Nigeria’s economy, but none of them can be considered as the owner of the country.
