  1. And so what?What are there relevance to the majority who are so poor.Richmen of poor people.pls am fefup with this rubbish write up

  2. I don’t celebrate these groups of people. To me most of them are the poorest being I have ever seen, what have they done induvidually or cummulatively to alleviate the suffering of the common masses. There are many displace people in the north. A non Nigerian spear heads polio eradication in Nigeria (Bill gate) despite the fact that most of these their millions are either directly or indirectly are proceeds from loots of our collective resources, or finance houses that were sent to early grave alongside their innocent depositors. There are lots of brilliant young and old promising Nigerians who has passion and constructive dream for this country all they need is just little fraction on research to place the country among the best in the world. Never will they do that because they wants to dominate our lifes, thank God for the free gift of life.

    I don’t see them as the richest rather the most wicked Nigerians I’ve ever seen.
    Nigerian missed some real billionairs like chief MKO ABIOLA and some that are still alive that are not listed whom all their life brings smile to common people irrespective of where they come from

  3. will i ever make this list with salary earning,…….well let the will of God be done. Amen

  4. Can they assist young entrepreneurs to develop especially the youth. Eg. I’m looking for a partner to invest here in Kenya

  5. Agunbiade Hakeem, I am highly impressed with you as you have said it all. I am surprise to see comments from others in this medium admiring those billionaires irrespective of their irrelevance to our society. I don’t know what is wrong with our youths.

  6. I really appreciate Allah for having these guys around us but of course they should do more in reaching the poor, needy and also the youth so that there wealth will be meaningful to them.

  7. Oh God, include me in the list of best servants in Your Eyes and in the eyes of Your rightly guided servants. Help me to get my daily bread legally and give me the heart to give some to Your needy servants out of it till I go back to You.

  8. The only thing they have in common is acquiration of wealth. None of them have a specific Charity organisation they donate to. Even the poor ones in their localities don’t benefit from their wealth. I don’t have respect for them.

  9. These are the Nigerian bourguioses who fed fat and made their money through government patronage and exclusive licenses and oil wells given to them by their paddy paddy in government. They do not deserve any respect from sane people, they do not even deserve to be mentioned by Forbes because they are worst than Mexican drug barons and the Sicillian mafia capo di tutti capis . One day go be one day when it will be payback time for them and their corrupt and criminal paddies in government. If people do not catch them what about God almighty, the omnipotent alpha and omega. Abacha and his family are good examples. Tell them to watch their backs and sleep with one eye open at all times. The impoverised 99 percent Nigerians will one day get their stolen money back IJMN. Amen
