Zamfara Governor’s N9trillion Asset Declaration Sparks Social Media Debate 


Executive Governor of Zamfara State, Dauda Lawal has made an asset  declaration of 9 trillion nairas in cash, investment and property .

The Code of Conduct Bureau had mandated all the newly elected Governors to make their asset declaration submitted to the bureau before May 29th 2023 when they were sworn-in.

Dauda Lawal was a former Executive Director at the First Bank of Nigeria Plc. He also worked sometimes with the former Minister of Petroleum, Allison Madueke.

Unfortunately, the richest person in Africa, Aliko Dangote is currently valued to worth 13.5 billion dollars by the Forbes. The next to Aliko Dangote on the Forbes list is Johann Rupert and Family who jointly worth 10.7 billion dollars.

When converted to US Dollars, Dauda Lawal’s 9 trillion naira is equivalent to about 12 billion dollars, that is supposedly second to Aliko Dangote and richer than Abdulsamad Rabiu who currently worth 7.6 billion dollars and Mike Adenuga who is currently valued to worth 6.3 billion dollars.

Some reactions from  Nigerians, Abubakar Hamma Galafi:
“I was shocked too. But I remember gold mining in the state. Zamfara has the highest Gold deposit in Africa”
Enitan Oyekanmi:

“Where are the companies and tax certificate for the companies and where are they located?

King Marvel:

“His declaring future stolen asset. He won’t have over $12bn and dare go into politics. All lies.


He’s declaring what he plans to steal

Olakunle Don:

I did not get it 9 trillion or Billion. That is like Budget of Lagos for 6years and Nigeria for 3years and that of Zamfara for almost 20years. Where is DANGOTE self.
