Comparison has been since time began. People always derive pleasure in comparing one thing/person to another. Most times, it gives the “winning” side a sense of accuracy and pride.

Honestly, regardless of how wealthy you may be, people will compare your affluence to someone else’s. The people who have escaped this type of comparison are those who have earned titles like “World’s Richest Man/Woman”.

Comparison is a daily activity. People compare games, sportsmen and sportswomen, religious centres, cars, etcetera. People always want to know who owns the latest car, who bought the most expensive house and so on, hence the comparisons.The subject of comparison is quite interesting, especially when it is on a good note and doesn’t promote division among the people involved.

In Nigeria, knowing who’s the richest, who owns the latest car or most expensive house is a huge deal. And the group of people who are usually considered rich in Nigeria is the political group.Although politicians are not exactly recognised as wealthy in the general sense, Nigerian politicians are. The irony, however, is that the richer these group of people get, the poorer Nigeria becomes.

And this has left some hoping for a miracle, while many have lost hope in the nation’s redemption. Well, that’s not what this article is about. Let’s go into the focus of this article.

Two popular Nigerian politicians whose affluence are often compared are Atiku Abubakar and Bola Ahmed Tinubu. There is no doubt that these men are wealthy in every sense of the word. It’s not surprising seeing that they own multiple businesses in Nigeria and abroad.

Hopefully, at the end of this article we’ll be able to ascertain who is wealthier between these two politicians.Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s estimated net worth is at $4 billion. Some of his alleged owned businesses are Radio Continental, Ikeja Shopping mall, Oando PLC, Lagos Oriental Hotel, TVC Television and Radio, and many others.

If you heard about a man who could afford a bullion van to convey his money, would you regard him as a mere rich man? Exactly! Some time in 2018, a bullion van was attacked.

This van was loaded with money and was conveying it to Tinubu’s home in Ikoyi, Lagos. If he could afford a bullion van, then he can afford any type of car. There is no estimate for the number of cars he owns; however, a few of them will be listed here.

Although rumours have it that he owns about 30 cars, the information is still not verified.SOME OF HIS FINEST CARS ARE:

An armoured Prado Jeep

This SUV is usually not armoured. A brand new one costs about N25 million. Now, after making it armoured and loaded with the latest technology, the cost of this car would skyrocket.

The amazing thing is that he doesn’t possess one of this jeep, he owns many for security purposes, all armoured and we’ll loaded with technology. This Jeep Prado runs on a 2.8 litre engine.Armoured Land Rover Bola

Asiwaju Tinubu usually receives gifts in cash and kind, but that doesn’t restrict him from purchasing these solid cars. A Land Rover’s price ranges from $76,000 to $175,000. It has a V-6 engine that produces 254 horsepower on 19-inch wheels.

A Mercedes Benz:

The latest version of this car costs $41,400 (N15,785,820) A luxury Lexus A Porsche

Atiku Abubakar (GCON) served as the Vice President of Nigeria from 1999 to 2007 under the administration of Olusegun Obasanjo. Atiku Abubakar contested in the Nigerian Presidential elections with Peter Obi as his running mate under the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in 2019.

This, however, wasn’t the first time he contested for presidency. In 1992 he ran for presidency under the Social Democratic Party (SDP), but he lost. In 2006 he was listed by Action Congress as a presidential candidate, but he lost before the race even started because, prior to that, he was tagged a corrupt Nigeria citizen.

Some of the businesses/establishments he owns are the INTELS, Property Development Company (PRODECO), American University of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar Farm, and many others. He has an estimated net worth of $1.8 billion.


During and after his tenure as the Vice President of Nigeria, which he did for ten years, he possesses a fleet of cars for security purposes.

Some of his luxury car collections include:

A Toyota Land Cruiser

A Range Rover A Lexus 570 A Mercedes S550 Based on the difference between their net worths, it is only true to say that Bola Asiwaju Tinubu is wealthier, seeing that he also owns more businesses than Atiku Abubakar.

The dispute here might be that Atiku A. was the Vice President of Nigeria for ten years, while Tinubu was only a governor. But that doesn’t change the truth.


Atiku Abubakar has four wives and twenty-eight children, most of whom still depend on him for their needs, which could be considered the reason for his low net worth.

Tinubu on the other hand has only one wife.

Aside his fleet of security cars and personal cars, he owns a private jet in addition to his luxury collection. He is the owner of an Embraer Phenom 100 Jet worth $4.1 million (N1, 563, 330, 000).
