30 Richest Men In Nigeria 2017 [updated] Number 5 Will Leave You Shouting by Kingsirko(f): 4:32am On Aug 23, 2017
eaaaa. We can't stop digging to find the best among all equals.

A Nigerian man Dangote has been on the top of the African's Richest Men for years now and then still leads in Nigeria.

Most people haven't been able to detect the net-worth of some Nigerian politicians and business gods. So we have made proper researches on these to bring to the world the Nigeria's hidden rich men who we don't expect to be on the list along side with the source of their wealth..

This List is incomplete till Mrs Diezani Alison Madueke is inserted preferably No 3. She is into Real Estate, Hotelier, Oil & Gas without known biz name. She has decided to gift FG with some of her properties through outright denials. To me, she deserves a space here.

Your list is wrong! Forbes puts Alakija as the 3rd richest Nigerian and I believe Forbes would be able to gather more information on rich people than your source

Didn't want to comment at first but did you all notice something? Almost all these people on this list have their hands in the oil & G sector. What does that tell us? The sector had always been rigged(still is) to benefit a selected few over the vast majority of the populace. Oil just provided easy money for politicians an their fat chronies.

I'm wondering how many billionaires we would have had if Nigeria had no oil.A large chunk of them made and are making their money from crude oil .still looking forward to the day when we shall have ingenious businessmen in the light of Steve jobs,gates ,innoson and many more like me.Most of them up there have no business being billionaires,they were just fortunate to have found themselves in favored positions with governments overtime .

what it tells me is that they saw an opportunity and took advantage of the oil boom. Oil is still high but it's market is soon to collapse on the long run. there are new fledgling markets they are probably already considering investing in if they haven't already. a true business man always goes with the flow of the market.

Bros, The link you share is about 25 richest man in Africa and not Nigeria. Mike Adenuga ranks 3rd in Africa and then second in Nigeria. And basically last year, Adenuga's net-worth surpassed that of that of Dangote as stated in Forbes too and from the way Mike Adenuga is HYPING His Globacom he might still beat Dangote this year as he did last year. We make proper clarification before we publish any post on Airinformations sir. Read ALSO_ http://www.airinformations.com/2017/01/mike-adenuga-beats-aliko-dangote-on.html

I really wonder how an individual should be handling an Oil well which a whole country can not even finish the money in it? Nigeria Government will there saying that Nigeria is in recession whereas they have giving or will I say sold out our country's pride to individuals who are just growing rapid in their own private pockets.
