TOP 5 RICHEST GOVERNORS IN NIGERIA 2018
« on: August 13, 2018, 12:00:42 PM »
As an independent territory, Nigeria comprises 36 States. With this fact, we can affirm that there are 36 governors in the country. With regard to the significant number of wealthy Nigerian governors, many people argue that Nigerian governors are embezzlers and barely can they make money without tampering with the public funds of their respective States { Richest Governors In Nigeria 2018 }.


 

 
However, some Nigerian governors have tried to amass their own wealth outside their political presence. With respect to this, they are notable for their vigorous presence in the business sector.

In this post, you will find out a genuine compilation of the Top 10 Richest Governors in Nigeria for the current year (2018). Significantly, most of these governors are from the Northern region and this is probably one of the reasons why cynical Nigerians identify Northern governors as political embezzlers.

Top 10 Richest Governors in Nigeria
1. Rochas Okorocha
Born in 1962, Rochas Okorocha is not only a Nigerian governor but also one of the influential personalities hailing from the South East. Rochas Okorocha, who serves as the incumbent governor of Imo State, is certainly the richest man amongst Nigeria’s governors. Besides being Nigeria’s wealthiest governor, Rochas Okorocha happens to be the richest among the Igbo governors in Nigeria’s South East. In 2015, Rochas Okorocha engaged in a preliminary contest with Muhammadu Buhari –Nigeria’s current President –for the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
With a view to promoting the welfare of the people, Rochas Okorocha established Rochas Foundation –a charitable organization. And apart from his remarkable presence in the political sphere, Rochas Okorocha has made his mark as a fortunate businessman.

2. Abubakar Sani Bello
Born in 1967, Abubakar Sani Bello is of Northern descent and presently, he serves as the governor of Niger State –one of the States in the North Central zone. Previously, he was Nigeria’s richest governor but due to the massive surge in governor Okorocha’s wealth, Sani Bello now claims the second spot among Nigeria’s richest governors.
Meanwhile, Governor Sani Bello is believed to have emerged from one of the wealthiest families in Northern Nigeria. As regards this, his family has appeared on Forbes’ list of richest African families. Although Niger State has no place among Nigeria’s top 10 richest States, Abubakar Sani Bello –in the company of his family –has carved out a significant path as one of the richest governors in Nigeria.

3. Kashim Shettima
Born in 1966, Kashim Shettima dominates the third position and currently serves as the governor of Borno State. Ali Modu Sheriff –who formerly held Kashim Shettima’s position as the governor of Borno State –once served as the wealthiest governor in Nigeria.

Although Borno State currently undergoes severe threats and setbacks imposed on it by Boko Haram, Kashim Shettima has managed to amass his own wealth and this makes him the second richest Northern governor as well as the third richest Nigerian governor.

4. Nyesom Wike
Nyesom Wike is a member of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). He became the governor of Rivers State in 2015 after having succeeded his predecessor –Rotimi Amaechi. Besides his notable reputation as one of the richest Nigerian governors, Nyesom Wike has performed remarkably in steering the progress of Rivers State –one of the Niger Delta States notable for their vast deposits of crude oil.
Apart from the fact that Rivers State is one of the progressive Nigerian States, Nyesom Wike has been labeled Nigeria’s best performing governor for the current year.


 
5. Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai
Born in 1960 in Kaduna State –his native State and one of the States in the Northern region, Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai serves as the incumbent governor of Kaduna. Following the 2015 gubernatorial elections, he emerged into the governorship status and on frequent occasions, he has been considered a vehement critic of Goodluck Ebele Jonathan –Nigeria’s former President.
