    Dangote Granite Mines, a subsidiary of Dangote Group, has awarded scholarships to about 60 students in five host communities.

    The company disclosed this in a statement issued in Lagos on Sunday by its Media Personnel, Dangote Industries Ltd, Francis Awowole-Browne.

    Mr Awowole-Browne stated that the scholarship was part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to foster educational development in its host communities.

    He noted that Ebenezer Ali, director, Human Assets Management, Dangote Projects, said the scholarship was meant to help the parents of the beneficiaries lessen the burden the education of their children placed on them.

    Mr Ali added that the scholarship was part of the agreements reached with the leadership of the host communities during the signing of the Community Development Agreement (CDA).

    He said the move was to ensure its host communities were not left behind in areas of education and infrastructural development

    Mr Ali urged the beneficiaries to face their education as they would be given automatic employment if they performed well academically.

    He thanked the communities’ leaders for creating an atmosphere of peace in the area and for showing the understanding that has led to the tranquillity enjoyed by the company and the communities.

    He assured the communities of the company’s readiness to do its part of the agreement in ensuring that it identified with the people at all times.

    “I charge the communities’ leaders to continue to support the management of Dangote Granite Mines by maintaining peace,” he said.

    An Ijebu Igbo Monarch, the Sopenlukale of Oke Sopen, Oba Adesesan Yussuf, thanked the management of Dangote Group for the assistance rendered to the communities.

    HELLO!!! I wanted to share an incredible story of a successful Bitcoin recovery. William Mercado's recovery team, a determined investor[John], recently experienced a devastating loss when his digital wallet was hacked, resulting in the theft of a significant amount of Bitcoin.
    Refusing to accept defeat, John assembled a team of experts in cybersecurity, forensics, and blockchain technology. Through their relentless efforts, they meticulously traced the hacker's transactions and identified dormant wallets associated with the theft.
    After hours of legal battles with the right tools, law enforcement licence and technical challenges, Mr WILLIAM's team successfully froze the hacker's assets and reclaimed the stolen Bitcoin. This remarkable recovery serves as a powerful reminder of the resilience and ingenuity within the cryptocurrency community.
