Aminu Alhassan Dantata
Founder of Express Petroleum & Gas Company Ltd, Aminu Alhassan Dantata, 91, has said that he hopes to leave the world in good faith because he no longer enjoys life.
The business mogul disclosed this when he received the Vice Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Kashim Shettima.
He explained that since his youth, he had the privilege of meeting many people and formed friendships in all states of Nigeria but can hardly name 10 who are still alive.
He also said that he is the only one left in his family with grandchildren.
He said: "I have travelled to all the states in Nigeria and I have done things with people across all states, many were friends but sadly, all the people I know, I hardly can call out 10 that are still alive.
"Honestly, as I am right now, I am just waiting for my time. I no longer enjoy life anymore. I hope I depart this world in good faith.
"I hope I did not offend anyone in life. If I offended anyone, I hope they find it in their hearts to forgive me. If anybody has offended me, I have forgiven them.
"I am now the only one left in my family living with grandchildren."
Dantata, while expressing joy and appreciation for the visit, prayed for Nigeria for everlasting peace and harmony.
"May God not leave us with our efforts alone, we pray for his continued guidance and protection," he added.
