Aliko Dangote, the president of Dangote group and 61 other billionaires are richer than over 3.5 billion people around the world.


In a report recently released by Oxfam, an international confederation against poverty, ahead of the world economic forum in Davos, Switzerland, it was also revealed that the richest 75 million people are richer than the rest of the world.

The organisation, working in approximately 94 countries worldwide to find solutions to poverty, said the total wealth of the poorest half of the world fell by N200 trillion since 2010.

Meanwhile, the wealth of the super-rich 62 rose by more than half a N100 trillion over the same period to N352 trillion (£1.22trn).
