This post on the richest and wealthiest Hausa man in Nigeria/Africa is for record purpose as we have also covered the richest Igbo man in Nigeria and even went as far as listing the top 10 to that regard.
We shall also provide the richest Yoruba man in our subsequent post so as to balance the equation on the major ethnic groups in Nigeria. Although, every one is entitled to his or her opinion this post is for informative purposes as the argument on which tribe in Nigeria is the richest should not arise as we are all one Nigeria.
Contrary to the fact that most people from the Southern part of Nigeria think that the Hausa tribe is the most wicked tribe in Nigeria, that is false as every tribe/ethnic group have shown such trait. Hausas are peace loving people and in are very good in what ever they do. Most people confuse them to be the same as the Fulani speaking people.
Before the arrival of Alhaji Aliko Dangote the richest man in Africa 2016, Alhassan Dantata (1877 – 17 August 1955) was a popular Northern Nigerian trader in kola nuts, ground nuts and distributor of European goods. He supplied large British trading companies with raw materials and also had business interests in the Gold Coast. At the time of his death he was one of the wealthiest men in West Africa and richest Hausa man in his time.
Who is the Richest Hausa Man in Nigeria?
Forbes ranking says Aliko Dangote is Africa’s richest man. He is the owner of Dangote Group, a multi billion conglomerate that operates in different countries in Africa. Dangote became the 23rd richest person in the world in 2014. Aliko Dangote’s net worth is $18.5 Billion. Since Alhaji Dangote is the wealthiest man in Nigeria and Africa and from the Hausa tribe in Kano state, automatically, he is the richest Hausa man in Nigeria.
