Mohammed VI of Morocco is the richest president in Africa with an expected total assets of about $5.8 billion.

Raised in riches, influence and sovereignty, he had the chance to be taught at the most renowned schools around the world. After he rose to office in July 1999 following the demise of his father, King Hassan II.
His total assets is supposed to be $5.8 billion. According to reports, Mohammed VI’s fortune to a great extent originates from a Moroccan organization called (SNI) Societe Nationale Investissement, where he has huge resources worth over $10 billion and furthermore from huge organizations, for example, Marjane Holding and SNI’s 48% shareholding in Attijariwafa – Morocco’s biggest bank.
While most of Africans are scarcely getting by financially, African presidents are known to be among the wealthiest individuals in Africa and there is a general understanding that the workplace expands the ledgers of African presidents and their families.
Who is Africa’s poorest president?
We as a whole know about the world’s ‘poorest president’, Uruguay’s José Alberto “Pepe” Mujica Cordano. He filled in as the 40th President of Uruguay from 2010 to 2015. It is said that Africa’s poorest president is Nigeria’s Muhammadu Buhari who is said to have no privately owned businesses, processing plants and records in any remote banks.
These were his benefits according to nigerianinfopedia.com: five houses, two mud houses, lacking ground zone in the Southern locale of the nation, lacking area in the Northern district of the nation a farm with a plantation, cows (270 heads), poultry, five ponies and 25 sheep partakes in Berger Paints, Union Bank and Skye Bank; two new vehicles.
More often than not, after assuming influence, some African heads begin amassing riches, frequently using irregular methods. They consider administration to be a chance to advance themselves over the command to serve their kin. Nations leading in debasement hazard are for the most part from Africa, and in many cases under the snare of the presidents and individuals near them.
Some are genuine business individuals, however the seat of administration and its influence accompanies provisos to develop their tremendous businesses. In such cases, it’s judicious to include both present and previous presidents when ranking them as far as their riches.
How would they aggregate riches in nations where residents can’t manage the cost of fundamental needs like food, safe house and medicinal services?
That aside, do you agree with the fact the M. Buhari is the poorest president in Africa?
