Although Nigeria currently has the largest number of extreme poor people as a country, it still prides itself in having some of the most industrious people in the world who struggle to make earns meet despite the harsh economic conditions combined with the mammoth ever increasing population  of the country. Nigeria can also take pride in having the richest black man in the world from its terrain, and a host of other very influential people who make the cut for the list of the Top 10 Richest People In Nigeria as at 2018 and their networth.
