9th place – Abdul’aziz Abubakar Yari
He is expected to remain in the office of Zamfara State governor til 2019, and currently, he is considered to be one of the richest governors in Nigeria, specifically in the northern region of the country. It is widely alleged that Abdul’aziz Abubakar Yari took advantage of his power in the office of Zamfara State to help himself become wealthy, and this is perhaps why he is among the richest governors of Nigeria.
8th place – Umaru Tanko Al-Makura
He is the governor of Nasarawa State. This state is not ranked high among the wealthiest Nigerian states because GDP and general development are not exactly the best. However, Umaru Tanko Al-Makura somehow managed to become wealthy and rise to the TOP 10 of richest governors in Nigeria ever since he came to power.
