Nigerian businessman and the richest man in Africa, Aliko Dangote may have retained his spot as Africa’s leading money bag with an estimated worth of $10.3bn, closely followed by Globacom chairman, Mike Adenuga ($9.2bn), but according to the latest ranking by Forbes, Dangote’s estimated net worth dropped by $2.1bn from 2018.
In 2015, Dangote was reported to have a net worth of $25bn, but three years after, it has reduced to $10.3bn.
To understand the damage @MBuhari has done to our economy, look at @Forbes’ latest rankings of @AlikoDangote’s wealth:
2015 estimated wealth: $25 billion.
2018 estimated wealth: $12.4 billion
2019 estimated wealth: $10.3 billion
Dangote’s wealth may be $0 if PMB is re-elected.— Reno Omokri (@renoomokri) January 10, 2019
