The Olugbo of Ugbo Kingdom, HRM Frederick Obateru Akinruntan has emerged as the richest king in Nigeria according to Forbes rating.

Oba Akinruntan beat the Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuade to emerge the wealthiest monarch in Nigeria.

Simple question how many has he changed there lives in a positive way

Buying a Bentley 2012 which the money that would have been used to feed thousands and if that Bentley get burnt so the money gets wasted


The owner of Facebook mark zuckerberg a billionaire at 23, and one of the youngest self made billionaires doesn't have a Bentley.

If the king had focused more and channelled his wealth in helping the poor it would have been better than wasting it on materials that has no value in the long run

God will bless you to bless others, God makes you a financial giant so you can change the life's of thousands because God him self can't come down and give you such materials but will use common men like the king just mentioned above

I pray that we all remember our purpose on this earth and not to be blinded by material things
