Meet the Richest Yoruba Man, He is Worth $5.7 Billion

The money we consider vanity is the same money that this human being uses to make a world change. The man who controls a large number of wealth in the country is a versatile business Mogul and has a significant role in the riches of the world, has presence in various sectors, including the economy, the petroleum and telecommunications sectors.

He is a Yoruba, Ibadan-style indigenous man of the State of Oyo. The 67-year-old man had his elementary and high school in the State of Oyo prior to his higher education in northwestern Oklahoma and Pace University.

He drove a taxi in school to support himself and pay for his classes. When we talk of wealthy people in Nigeria, his name has to be on the Top 5 list, since, as Forbes says, he is Nigeria 's second richest man with accumulated wealth of $5.7 billion.

Two women were married and seven children were born by him.

He was jailed by the EFCC in 2009 for money laundering and later fled Nigeria to live in London before being pardoned under Umaru Musa Yaradua, the late President.

It was in the news in 2016 that his business owed $140.5 million in debt and declined to pay the debt they owes. An order was also issuted by a high court in Lagos for a $9.4 million debt by one of his firms, Bellop.

We speak about none other than Mike Adenuga, the business mogul and the oil tycoon. He is Conoil 's chairman and Globalcom 's founder, as well as a major shareholder in a financial institution. Adenuga has accumulated so much wealth that he has changed his life and set a course for his generation.

At the age of 26, Adenuga created his first million, selling lace and selling soft drinks.

This is a wake up call for the youths of this generation to put their best into their daily life and make wealth from the things people believe to be basic.

God's plan for everyone is to be comfortable. Don't think it is his plan for you to suffer.

Take a step today towards liberating your life.
