PHOTOS|| One Of Africa's Poorest President

For people who have never sought out a piece of information like this before, you may assume the poorest Presidents in Africa are those from the poorest countries in the continent. But interestingly, this can’t be farther from the truth.

Actually how much wealth an African country has doesn’t necessarily determine how much its President would have.

Who is the Africa's poorest president?

Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria was proclaimed the poorest African leader with an estimated net worth of just over $150,000. Well, that raises some important questions because he has five homes and two mud houses in his native village in Daura Local Government Area of Katsina State, Nigeria.

The Washington Post has said in one of its’ reports that Buhari may be the only leader in Africa with the least wealth. According to the report, Buhari was described as being extremely poor when compared to other sub-Saharan African leaders.
