In this world, no matter how rich you are, people would still compare you to other people, except you have been dubbed the richest man in the whole world. People want to compare who’s driving the latest car, who’s buying the latest house and so on. It is not a bad thing to compare, because it creates healthy competition amongst the persons involved.

In Nigeria, there are always comparisons when it comes to riches. In as much as Politicians are not recognized on global lists as rich people, permit this article to say that Nigerian politicians are rich. Even if the ways through which they get richer are frowned upon, it has to be said, Nigerian politicians are rich. It is an irony because, they are getting richer and Nigeria is getting poorer and at this point, only a miracle can save us.
Two Nigerian Politicians that constantly get compared in terms of who the richer person is, are Atiku Abubakar and Bola Ahmed Tinubu. They are both very wealthy men in all ramifications, they own chains of businesses in and outside of Nigeria. This article aims to compare and confirm who the richer person is, in terms of the cars they own.
If you are interested in finding out more about these two men, check The Richest Politicians in Nigeria: Net Worth & Cars they own, and purpose in your heart not to scream when you are done.
Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s net worth
Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a Nigerian politician who served as the 12th Governor of Lagos State from 1999 to 2007. Before then, he was a member of the House of Senate, representing Lagos West Senatorial District in 1993. Bola Ahmed Tinubu owns several businesses in Lagos, around Nigeria, and abroad. He currently has an estimated net worth of about $4 billion or even more. Some of his alleged owned businesses are Lagos Oriental Hotel, TVC Television and Radio, Radio Continental, Ikeja Shopping Mall, and many other businesses.
Bola Ahmed Tinubu Cars
There was a time in 2018 when a bullion van conveying money to his home in Ikoyi, Lagos was attacked. This is just the tip of the iceberg to explain how rich Tinubu is. If he can afford a bullion van to get him money, try imagining the different cars he has sitting in his garage.
There is no estimate of the number of cars he owns, but some of them will be listed here. Some people say that he has about 30 cars, but if that answer is right, I cannot say. Some of his finest cars are:
- An armoured Jeep Prado: This SUV on a normal day is not armoured, and for a brand new Jeep Prado, it costs about N25 million, but when you begin to get it armoured and designed with the latest technology and security features, you cannot get this car for less than N50 million. He does not just have one of these cars sitting in his garage, he has several for security purposes. This Jeep Prado runs on a 2.8 Litre engine.
- Armoured Land Rover: This is another armoured SUV owned by Tinubu,. Even though he gets a lot of gifts in the car and is kind, he still becomes the owner. This car’s price ranges from $76,000 to $175,000, and 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 Porsche
- A luxury Lexus
Atiku Abubakar Net Worth
Atiku Abubakar GCON served as the Vice-President of Nigeria from 1999 to 2007 under the Olusegun Obasanjo administration. In 2019, Atiku contested the Nigerian Presidential elections with Peter Obi as his running mate under the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
He first contested for the Presidential office in 1992 under the Social Democratic Party, but he lost, in 2006 he was listed by Action Congress as a Presidential Candidate but his name was purposely omitted because he was listed as a corrupt person in Nigeria. Some of his businesses are the American University of Nigeria, INTELS, Property Development Company (PRODECO), Atiku Abubakar Farm, and many other investments.
Atiku Abubakar has an estimated net worth of $1.8 billion.
Atiku Abubakar Cars
Atiku has contested many Presidential elections and has been the Vice-President of Nigeria for 10 years. During his tenure, he must have had a fleet of cars for security purposes, some may have gifted him cars, and even after his term at his office, many people still gift his cars. Some of his luxury car collection includes:
- A Mercedes S550
- A Lexus 570
- A Toyota Land Cruiser
- A Range Rover
Atiku Abubakar Private Jet
Apart from his fleet of security cars and personal cars, he has 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).
The net worth shown for Bola Ahmed Tinubu shows that he is richer than Atiku Abubakar. Even in terms of businesses owned, it shows he is richer than Atiku. This may be disputed in the sense that Atiku Abubakar has been the Vice-President of Nigeria for 10 years, while Tinubu was the Governor of Lagos state, so how is Tinubu richer?
Also, the reports may be right being that Atiku Abubakar has four wives and twenty-eight children who depend on him for survival, and Tinubu has only one wife. Regardless, the two Politicians and businessmen are very rich, in all senses of the word.
