You would be amazed that Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has been labelled as the poorest leader in sub Saharan Africa and possibly the least corrupt leader in Africa.

The reason is based on his asset declaration prior to his inauguration in May 29 where he had N30 million which is equivalent to $150,000. In a report by The Washington Post, the declaration showed that the president is not in the league of rich African leaders.

    1. It’s the collective effort of Nigerians to nip every form of corruption in the bud the penalty should be life imprisonment
      We should tell ourselves the truth it’s a learned powerlessness
      The man Buhari may not be currupt but with out fear or favour he is in charge of Nigeria and the buck stops and starts with him – He shouldn’t travel again for medical treatment he should fix the health care and security issue before he lives
      Small deliberate steps would be a plus for nigeira

  4. This “poorest” president just treated himself in UK with $32m! How much was VP’s gate budgeted this year? how much was his library budget las year? Who are you guys deceiving?

    Poorest president but they all die to be there! How much Prof Osibanjo’s salary a professor? How much is Buhari paying his ministers, including Kachikwu that claimed he was being paid over N100m abroad? All them, the NASS, the president, the VP, the ministersials? are all the same! None has the interest of the nation at heart. May God forgive them!
