Despite the drop, Dangote still retained his spot as Africa’s money bag with an estimated worth of $10.3bn, closely followed by Globacom chairman, Mike Adenuga ($9.2bn),
In 2015, Dangote was reported to have a net worth of $25bn, but three years after, that lot has reduced by about $15bn.
Nigerians have reacted, with some attributing it to the poor economic condition of the country. It should be noted that Nigeria, was, in 2018 reported to have overtaken India has the world poverty capital.

Dangote’s wealth may be $0 if PMB is re-elected.

If we blame Buhari for Dangote’s case. Then why didn’t the same thing happen to Adenuga.
I just keep wondering how this happened.#Forbes
