The Poorest President in Africa 2018
This post contains the poorest president in Africa, who might also be the world’s poorest leader and the least corrupt.
In one of our posts, we published a list of 10 African richest presidents and their Net worth. This time, we are writing on the poorest president in Africa. 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.
Although, Nigeria might not be on the list of Richest Countries in Africa, Nigeria tops the list of most corrupt countries in Africa 2018. President Buhari was elected because of his acclaimed record and promise of ending corruption whilst showing a sense of transparency.
Meanwhile, according to current Forbes ranking of wealthiest presidents, Jose Eduardo dos Santos of Angola is the richest African president with Net Worth of $20 million
