Without question, Adenuga should be the richest.

He has his fingers sooo deep in the three most lucrative sectors of the economy- Oil & Gas(upstream), Telecoms and Banking! That's deep!

Dangote on the other hand is basically a trader.(no disrespect intended)

The reason Adenuga is not on Forbes is simple- no PLCs. Forbes basically makes assessments based on quantifiable wealth and for Nigeria they make do strictly with stock values.

Otedola is on the list this year because of his shares in AP. Zenon was probably barely taken into consideration!

@ KunleOshob

Your analysis are sound and well noted.

Really, where does all this leave the poor masses of Nigeria?

Some of this individuals are benefitting from the ills of our past

and present leaders, who gave them soft landing at the expense

of all of us.

@poster

please read your line again? IBB and the politicians you are refering to are looters not rich. They don't even

have the skill to make genuine money. If they hadn't stolen in the past you will not even have been considering

them now.

So, please and please don't mix thief with people who work for their money. There is dignity in labour and

the Otedolas, Dangotes and the rest deserve to be celebrated not the likes of IBB who should be rotting in jail now

if he was in a sane country?

Dangote is equally busy, if not busier. I understand Mike's style of management, where he oversees almost everything, including interviewing an entry level job applicant, but you know Aliko is also busy jumping from one meeting to another.

By the way, can Adenuga be busier than the capitalist US billionaires that made the list?

Another point of note is that mike Adenuga was the only nigerian that could singularly recapitalize his bank(ETB) to N25 billion naira during the banking consolidation all others had to go to the capital market or bring in foreign investors. today his bank remains the only privately owned(unquoted)Nigerian bank in the country asides the foreign owned banks.

Mike also makes money by sec (he makes money whenever a phone call is made). Now, do you know how many people in Ghana, Rep. of Benin and Nigeria that are making phone calls as we speak?

Sometimes, the quiet ones are the biggest ones.

Forbes will only list you if you make yourself available. Mike is never available, he's too busy thinking about turning ₦1.00 to ₦10000000000

Well when you net off his exposure to the banks you would discover that there is not so much left. Dangote is the biggest individual debtor in the nigerian banking industry today. On the contrary Mike as been producing crude oil for over 15 years and he makes millions of dollars on a daily basis. Even though he is also exposed to foreign banks he is highly liquid and the loans are being adequtely serviced. Globalcom alone generates N500-N700 million naira on a daily basis from their local nigerian operations alone, that is not to say what is being generated in benin and Ghana. That apart glo gateway is operational in all the continents of the world carrying international calls for various operators. i hate to imagine the the amount of money he would generate from glo1( submarine fibre optic cable from Lagos to London and newyork) when it becoms operational in May this year.

Femi Otedola will tell you straight up that Mike is richer not only 2 times but 6 times richer.

Just difficult to agree that FO is richer than Mike.

As regards Aliko Vs The Bull, it's very tight but I somehow believe Dangote has a deeper pocket.

The ranking is based on verifiable wealth. The worths of those ex-Presidents, Politicians etc are unverifiable, kept in secret accounts all over the world.

Anyway, for 5 richest Nigerians, I go like this:

1, Dangote

2, Mike Adenuga

3, Femi Otedola

4, Jim Ovia

5,

Otedola's making of Forbes list, and Mike's not, tells he's now richer than Mike. But I'm still taking my list as I knew before latest ranking. Difficult to digest Otedola richer than the 'bull'.

Forbes computes networth based on quoted stock holdings of individuals and NOT net assets or other unquoted investments. Only a very tiny fracion of Adenuga's business is quoted (conoil plc) the main companies Global com, ETB and Conoil producing are not considered cos they are not quoted. Globalcom alone is worth at least $10 billion talk less of other investments and companies he owns over seas. i am quite certain that the bull is substantially richer than Dangote talkless of femi
