Here are the top 10 richest Governors in Nigeria in 2017 – #2 appeared in Forbes Magazine (PHOTOS)

7th place – Akinwunmi Ambode

This famous political leader was born in 1963, and he is widely considered to be one of the best performing political leaders in the country. He is not only officially the richest governor in Nigeria but also the head of Lagos State government, which is undoubtedly the wealthiest state in the whole country. He has done a good job at improving Lagos State and currently, he has the people’s support.

Akinwunmi Ambode became the Lagos State governor in 2015. Before becoming the governor, he served in of Lagos State civil service for many years, so it is safe to say he knows a lot about Lagos state. The political success came to him when he defeated his rival Jimi Agbaje from the opposition People’s Democratic Party.

6th place – Abdulfatai Ahmed

Another governor from the northern part of Nigeria is Abdulfatai Ahmed, who is a governor of Kwara State. This man was born in 1963, and he comes from Saare, the region in Kwara State. He got elected for his second term in the office in 2015.

Kwara State is one of the least infrastructural developed states. While the governor holds the sixth position in this rating, lots of public workers in Kwara State are complained about unpaid salaries. We are hoping that the general situation in this Nigerian state will improve very soon.
