« on: November 08, 2014, 11:44:51 PM »

A Nigerian is now the 23rd richest person in the entire world! It’s our very own President of Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote. According to Forbes, he has moved 20 spots from his initial position of the 43rd richest person in the world to the 23rd position making him the first first black man to be named among the 25 richest people in the world! He is currently worth $25bn Facebook owner, Mark Zuckerberg, holds the 21st spot, but with the way things are going, Dangote may surpass him pretty soon. Congrats to him!

Globacom’s boss, Chief Mike Adenuga, is the next Nigerian on the list, with a wealth of $4.6bn, he is maintaining the 325th position in the world, while Folorunsho Alakija, with $2.5bn, is on the 687th spot and Abdulsamad Rabiu in the 1,372th position in the world, with $1.2bn.
